Fedora Women’s Day (FWD) is a day to celebrate and bring visibility to female contributors in open source projects including Fedora. The initiative is led by Fedora’s Diversity and Inclusion team. The number of women in tech have been increasing year over year, further highlighting the importance of a more inclusive culture in tech.
On September 21, We had our first Fedora Women’s Day in the UAM Azcapotzalco (Mexico City) and we loved to do it.
The agenda was:
- Fedora Four Foundations and how to become a Fedora contributor by Alberto Rodríguez.
- Women in Tech by Viviana Nava from Wikimedia / Mozilla México.
- Python 101 workshop by Alberto Rodríguez.
- Pizza and Networking.

All the attendees are in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Careers
