Yes, it is that time of the year, Fedora Women’s Day (FWD) is here! With the backdrop of COVID-19, FWD is going all virtual this year on October 16th, 17th, and 18th.

As a global event, FWD celebrates women and non-binary contributors across the Fedora Project. This event is an opportunity for folks from diverse backgrounds to connect, learn and grow by drawing inspiration from each other.

Talking about inspiration, we are happy to announce that the Call for Participation is open for sessions below, where you can share your stories to inspire others.

For speakers :

Women & Non-Binary Folks in Fedora

Share your experience in Fedora, with a 30 minute session telling your Fedora/FOSS story. Your session should include some of the following pieces of your journey.

  • How you became involved in Fedora
  • How you contribute to Fedora or FOSS (past/current)
  • What challenges did you face
  • What victories did you achieve
  • How can we improve D&I in Fedora/FOSS
  • Wrap up & Q&A

Intro to Fedora

Guide newcomers on how to become a Fedoran. This could be a general session on Fedora, or a specific introduction to project or technology that is part of Fedora. Here are a couple suggestions to get ideas flowing:

  • What Fedora is and what we do
  • Overview of different areas in Fedora
  • Guidance connecting folks to the right places
  • How to get involved on a specific team
  • Wrap up & Q&A
