The technology industry has been a major source of innovation and economic growth, but its ability to encourage diversity among its ranks lags. In 2016, women and underrepresented minorities accounted for 30% of the larger tech industry, while comprising roughly 10% of the Linux and OpenStack communities. To harness the full power of technology to tackle a broader set of societal challenges will depend, in part, on our ability to encourage a diversity of ideas, experiences and talent. Join us for an interactive discussion as we explore the numbers and what they mean, and in turn, discuss concrete, actionable steps that we can collectively take to foster a diverse, inclusive environment within our larger open source community.
