The OpenStack Gender Diversity Report published earlier this year [1] provided an initial view of the gender diversity within this community. The report studied both leadership and technical contributions, revealing that women occupy 20% of leadership positions, while accounting for 10% of technical contributions. This talk aims to apply this experience—quantitative analysis, open discussion, and community feedback—to strengthen diversity and inclusion within the Linux community.

This interactive discussion is organized into two parts, with specific focuses—a session, and a BoF discussion. The session (Part I) focuses on the tool that was used to capture the data for the OpenStack Gender Diversity report—its dashboard, widgets, queries and capabilities—with emphasis on how this tool can be applied to diversity research across other open source communities. Attendees will have the opportunity to play with the tool, and explore how it can be deployed to help further diverse, inclusive teams.

The BoF discussion (Part II) focuses on lessons learned from the earlier OpenStack Gender Diversity research, and aims to collect real-time feedback from attendees about what additional parameters and aspects they’d like to see us capture and analyze in future OpenStack Gender Diversity reports. The goal is to continually evolve and enhance this research based on community input, and to explore its application to the Linux community
