Hi Fedora Diversity Group,
I am so happy to know you exist! Someone in the Fedora women's list
suggested I reach out.
My name is Emma, and I work on Diversity and Inclusion at Mozilla. Last
year we invested in a lot of research to better understand
what we mean by diversity and inclusion, with a number of recommendations
coming out of that. Two of those recommendations were to build metrics
and to invest in ways of collaborating with other individuals and open
projects - to really generate change.
Thanks Emma for reaching out to us. Fedora Diversity group started few
years ago and getting smarter each year :)
I took time to read some of the studies you have shared with us in blog
form and I am happy to share that Fedora diversity team is also putting
efforts in similar direction to build a matrix via survey to dig out the
actual problem areas.
To those goals I want to ask *if you would be wiling to share our survey
*with your community, and whether anyone representing this group would be
available for an interview with our researcher - who is looking into how we
might form a collaborative for D&I in open source.
Collaboration is key in Open Source world to progress. We will be happy to
share the survey and we will definitely be interested in the survey results
(Please let me know if you will be able to share them with Fedora Diversity
team to study later).
I am representing Fedora Diversity team for this Fedora Release cycle (for
next 6 months) and I can do the interview.
At the same time, I will be happy if any of the other active contributor
from diversity team want to do it as all of us know most of the things
about the subject.
Thanks for your time, and of course happy to take questions or provide
more information on our work! 2018 for sure is all about taking our
research, and driving real change this year - would love to learn from you
Great. Thanks again for reaching out.
