I am Bee(IRC nick : bee2502) and I am a part of the Fedora Community Operations
Team(#fedora-commops on IRC). Diversity in Fedora is a discussion that has resurfaced in
the past few months, including the creation of a Fedora Diversity Adviser, a position
currently held by María "tatica" Leandro. As part of the objectives identified
by the Fedora Council, an initiative to promote Fedora to new contributors of various
backgrounds is being emphasized for 2016.
Fedora Women is central to this effort for increasing diversity. However, to get an
understanding of our current strengths and weaknesses - we’re going to need hard data
about our community, its composition, and their priorities and interests, so that we can
test hypotheses, and then create and execute a strategy. A good start in this direction
seems like adding your FAS details to the list of existing women contributors in Fedora on
the Fedora Women Wiki page - which has just eight women contributors listed currently !
