The open source community is vast. The greater tech community is even bigger. In the last year, we’ve watched reports about how bad our treatment is of women and marginalized groups within the tech community...it doesn’t take long to find pages and pages of stories. I am a white male from a middle class family and I am well aware of my privilege that other people within our community don’t share due to their gender identity, sexual orientation, mental or physical health, the color of their skin, what part of the world they were born in, etc, etc, etc. This talk will address the problems that exist and how those of us who have privilege can use our powers for good to make the community a better and more inclusive place for everyone.
