The Diversity Team encouraged local communities to gather and present the accomplishments of women in the Fedora Project and thank them. We are happy to see 10 Fedora Women Days happened in different regions to promote the participation of more women and raise awareness about the gender gap in tech communities.
Different topics were covered during the events, not only for people already familiar with our community but especially for newcomers intrigued by the open source world and willing to join the Fedora Project. This year we presented in Guwahati, Bangalore, Tirana, Managua, Cusco, Puno, Pune, Lima, Brno and Prishtina, spreading the word about Fedora and saying thank you to all the women contributors to our project.
Even though the events were dedicated to women, everyone of all identities were welcomed to participate or give a talk. We are glad to see how much interest there was in these events in different local communities and how successful they were, making the decision easier for us to organize them again next year.
