Understand how open source is evolving in underrepresented communities and helping them showcase their passion for code in tech. Learn the inclusivity best practices and how diverse teams can enhance engagement in open source projects exponentially. Underrepresented groups are now expressing their love for code and community via open source contributions, inclusive collaborations, and diverse teams. This is not only benefitting the folks themselves but also the communities where they are adding value. From student-run communities to open source organizations, all are adopting inclusive practices to welcome folks from any background. In this workshop, Ashwin will share the current situation of underrepresented groups in open source, the potential future, and some best practices to improve your own community, making it inclusive and diverse.
