Julita Inca Chiroque: Coordinating a FWD event

FWD stands for Fedora Women’s Day and our main goals is to attract more women in the FLOSS world, by using Fedora and GNOME.

As one of my duties in my country is teaching using Linux and I realise that only few women are interested in IT and if I found them… fewers are interested in using IT Linux.  In these pictures of my groups at UNI,  please see how much women we have:

even if I had interact with other researchers groups at UNI, I only found two or three more

Thanks to the invitation to other universities as a speaker, I was be able to contact with other IT enthusiactic, smart and pretty women students. And, after many efforts in months, we are going to present some work we got with Fedora and GNOME, and prove to others that we can do work in IT, using these Linux tecnologies:

Thanks to the Fedora Diversity Team to trust me the organization of the event in Peru, and special thanks to Chhavi for her patient in coordinating the design 🙂

The event is programmed to happen on September 30th at 08:00 am at PUCP LabV207, including a coffee break sponsored by Fedora. I am glad that so far, we have 32 going and 113 interested people in the event 🙂

Thanks to all people of the local community who are helping me to spread the event as wellThanks Giohanny, Solanch, Lizbeth, Azul, Sheyla, Chhavi and Geny for this! 😀
