You want to get more women involved in open source projects and communities. Catherine and Corinne want to help. Come talk about:

  • How to organize communities that are welcoming to women
  • Being an ally to underrepresented minorities in tech
  • Starting or helping a Girl Develop It chapter; nonprofits you can and should partner with both nationally and locally
