Re: Outreachy

Hi  Niclas

Thanks for the info. Taking a quick look at it and it seems that in general the Outreachy program is not only
women and within the US at least it's also open to under-represented groups. I'll take a more detailed look
at it to see if it could help us with encouraging diversity.

Thanks
Sharan

Outreachy

Everyone,

I met with Cosimo Cecchi, on of the Board directors of GNOME Foundation, in
Beijing over these last couple of days.

At some point "female participation in OSS" came up, and he suggested us to
get involved with Outreachy, a kind of Google Summer of Code, but
exclusively for women. It originated at GNOME Foundation, but was handed
over to Software Freedom Conservancy.
He claims that it has worked very well for them.

I offer this advice to those who have interest to run with it.

Cheers
Niclas

ASF Speakers for Devrelcon 2016 - London?

Hi All

I saw a link about Devrelcon in London later this year. 

http://london-2016.devrel.net/

It sounds very community related so just mentioning it here to see if we wanted to have any ASF speakers there.

Thanks

Encouraging Diversity - Update 2

Hi Everyone

Another update for you.  Last week I had a call with Angie Chang from Hackbright Academy. They focus on
training women in software engineering.   https://hackbrightacademy.com/about/ 

The main points from the call are as follows: 

- Hackbright maintain an alumnae mailing list which could be used to send them relevant announcements or
information. This could be a useful medium for passing on any ASF related announcements 
- The ASF has currently 17 projects that involve Python programming and this could be a good way for their
students to gain experience working in a team on an open source software project. 
- Most of their students look for work after they have graduated and don't want their skills to fade so
contributing to ASF projects could fill this gap and also improve their understanding of open source and
open source communities 
- Hackbright are keen for the ASF to do a webinar / webcast that covers an introduction to the Apache plus a
brief summary of each the Python related projects. If the webinar can capture the passion and enthusiasm
of being involved in Apache, then it could motivate their alumnae to find out more about becoming involved 
- Hackbright could be interested in becoming a Media or Community Partner for Apachecon
- Hackbright would like to know about the availability of ASF Speakers in the San Francisco area to speak at
their events. They would be particularly interested in knowing about Apache female speakers especially
for their Hackathon events. 

There were a few action points that came out of the call that are now being progressed. 

1. List of ASF news and announcements – I will follow up with Sally about this
2. Becoming a Media / Community Partner – They are already in contact with the Linux Foundation about Apachecon.
3. List of Available Speakers / Mentors - I will check the ComDev list of speakers and forward them the
details of any ASF speakers in the San Francisico area
4. Creation of Webinar / Webcast - I'm currently talking to Sally about putting the webinar together and we
may need to contact the Python related Apache projects for their input and help.
