Squashing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Bugs in Open Source Projects - Georg Link, Bitergia

Feedback form is now closed.
We know open source software projects are hyper-collaborative environments, but surveys reveal that project members lack diversity. There are many reasons why open source projects appear uninviting to people of underrepresented groups. We would consider these reasons “bugs” if the system was software. We’ll use the idea of DEI bugs to discuss how we can identify where open source projects fall short in being welcoming and inclusive. The goal of this framing is to find ways to squash these bugs and bring out the potential of everyone who has an interest in our open source projects. The primary takeaway is to walk in the shoes of others and take a fresh look at your project. The audience will walk away with actionable steps to take a new look at their own open source projects and start making a positive difference.
