Building more inclusive open source community at Fedora

(This blog is about the Fedora Diversity Team and what we were up to this Flock 2017 held at Cape Cod, USA)

Apart from the keynotes, hack fests and some delicious sea food at this Flock, Diversity Team had a session and decided to gain direction, move a little faster, break a few barriers and do some other amazing things.  I’m writing it down here for people who weren’t there in the room with us.

Just to let you know, things written like this, are action items for us.  Join us and help out.

Join us to plan the event : LGBT Awareness Day, 17th May!

What binds us behind the IRC screens and pagure issues, is an unrelenting drive to make Fedora a better resource for those out there. What divides us is nothing but a difference of opinions on how we want to execute this. All through this, it is through differences we conclude to the best option and through diversity in the community, we capture all perspectives.

As an initiative to preserve and encourage this diversity, the Fedora Diversity Team plans to organize an event for International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. We are looking at it as an opportunity for a virtual community meet-up.

An inclusive event cannot be built without being inclusive of all the voices of the community. We would like to solicit your ideas on how we can make this event effective in spreading awareness and building a more inclusive Fedora community. You may suggest tasks that we can do together, talks, workshops, badges, blogs, videos, messages, or anything else on your mind.

We would like to look at this journey as allies, the community and its people. We both build each other stronger. All your thoughts, opinions, feedback or just a +1 will be deeply valuable to us. Please do so in the following ticket: 
https://pagure.io/fedora-diversity/issue/22

While we do so, we respect your privacy and will totally understand if you want to contribute anonymously. Please feel free to mail at amsharma@redhat.com for doing so! We are coordinating a video call on May 17th, into late evening UTC. The details of the video call link and time can be found on the ticket mentioned above.

Just a humble request more, do add hashtags #LGBTMay17_fedora  #celebration on social media to talk about this event and its planning! 🙂

Hoping for a successful event,

Warmly,
Fedora Diversity Team
