To truly advance diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), stakeholders from across the open source software ecosystem must come together transparently and collaboratively as a community. But first, we have to start with the data. Last year, the Linux Foundation completed the 2021 Open Source Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Survey. Almost 1 in 5 survey respondents agreed with the statement “they did not feel welcome in open source.”

Come hear from Hilary Carter, VP of Research, Linux Foundation and Demetris Cheatham, Senior Director, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy, GitHub and creator of All In, an open source community whose mission is to advance DEI in open source. During this fireside chat, they will discuss the goals of the survey, what we learned, the challenges that still persist, and what we all can do, individually and collectively to create a more inclusive open source for all.
