WOO Mission Statement

The Women of OpenStack strive to lower the barrier of entry to OpenStack learning and use, intending to thereby increasing the overall diversity of the OpenStack community, recognizing that individuals in minority groups are more likely to have challenges accessing resources to learn complex technologies. Secondly, the Women of OpenStack provides a professional and social networking group for women, and their allies, with common interests in OpenStack, OpenSource, and associated technologies. These goals are achieved through leading and sponsorship of educational sessions and social events that promote inclusion in the OpenStack Community.

(takeaways from the May 2015 Vancouver Summit)

Group Challenge Suggested Next Steps
1 Need more women PTLs and need to support women who want to grow as technical contributors Find ways to support women to be recognized as technical leaders. Example: travel funding for women to attend OpenStack summits
2 Not enough women in the OpenStack community Attract women to the OpenStack community and support them to remain active in the community. Example: mentorship of women to achieve technical leadership roles
3 Women need support and practice to more confidently communicate in meetings or in larger groups Webinar on how to participate more effectively in meetings. Example: role play meeting scenarios, help women gain confidence and practice to ask questions during a Tokyo summit talk
4 Need to support higher inclusion of women in the OpenStack community Workshop to develop leadership soft skills, encourage inclusion, recognize regional gaps in communication, celebrate the successes of women in the OpenStack community
5 Need women leaders to be more visible in the OpenStack main tent sessions Have a woman keynote speaker, more women participate in panel discussions. Support women with speaker training and creating a pipeline of speaking opportunities for them.
6 Need a supportive and interactive environment for women to come together and support one another with the OpenStack community Create a private IRC channel for the Women of OpenStack, opportunities to seek and find mentors more naturally based on technology and areas of interest
7 Need a platform to encourage informal mentoring and networking Reward and recognize mentorship as a key skill that is important as other technical skills
