Hey D&I Team, I hope everyone's doing fine in this time of COVID-19.
We're having Nest with Fedora this year as a virtual event instead of
Flock, I'm thinking what would be a better time of the year to plan this
survey than to do it when we're having an Annual Contributor's
conference to gain a broader perspective about the state of D&I in
Fedora from the Contributors & the people joining the event. I've
previously opened a ticket on pagure to initially gather ideas around
it about how can be plan a Survey for Fedora D&I team. As previously
there was a survey planned but wasn't executed due to a blocker about
which, @riecatnor shared about in this comment here
[https://pagure.io/fedora-diversity/issue/130#comment-644627] and then
@amsharma suggested about obtaining a top to bottom approach where we
start with defining and gaining clarification over the main objectives
and draft the questionnaire and then share it with Fedora Legal & FCAIC
to improve them.
Here are some of the proposed objectives:
- Fedora and Free and Open Source Software Usage & Contributions to gain
clarity on how fedora users/contributors feel while
working/using/interacting with fedora and from what type of professional
backgrounds they belong to.
- For the demographics part, we can get to know how many people from
diverse groups are participating in FOSS & Fedora.
- Experience with Diversity & Inclusion : What people from diverse
backgrounds think about Diversity & Inclusion in Fedora
- Fedora Onboarding Process, In the past years the Join SiG is helping
with Onboarding newcomers to become Contributors to the Fedora Project,
How newcomers/contributors feel about it and how it can be improved.
The survey will help us identify the role of D&I Team in Fedora & how
can we improve Fedora for Individuals from Diverse Backgrounds and Groups.
Suggestion by @jwflory7 : For the Platform, rather than self hosting a
survey platform, we can use something like Google Forms for ease to data
gathering and very few, selected people would be able to access it to
gain insights from the data.
Kindly share your ideas on what other ideas/objectives can be proposed
and why do we need it?
Have a Good Day !
Hey D&I Team,
I'm Nasir Hussain, I came across Fedora Project thanks to Google Code In 2019, and after that I'm around in the Advocates and the Fedora-Join SiG to promote Fedora in the Local Hacker Space & to Help newcomers become Contributors for the Project. I often test Packages & run the Kernel Regression tests for Fedora too.
I would like to be a part of the D&I Team, to make Fedora more Diverse and Inclusive.
