The Linux Foundation Partners with Women Who Code to Increase Diversity at 2016 Events

Filed under
Linux

Part of our mission at The Linux Foundation is to bring more people into the open source community, which involves reaching people who have traditionally been underrepresented in open source specifically and technology generally.

As part of this continuing effort, we are proud to partner with Women Who Code to provide free passes and 20 percent discounts for their members and subscribers to attend The Linux Foundation’s various events around the world. Women Who Code was created in 2011 and is best known for its weekly publication the CODE Review and free technical study groups, hack nights, career development, and speaking events featuring influential technology industry experts and investors. Their focus on education aligns with our goal to increase access to Linux and open source learning materials, helping to grow the Linux and open source talent pool, increases diversity in technology and provides the pathway to the most lucrative jobs in IT.
