Today we started the Ada Initiative Census of women in open technology and culture. The survey (intended for people of any gender) asks two broad sets of questions: What open projects are you working on, and what is your opinion of how women are treated in your project and in the open community in general? The goal of the census is to periodically “take the temperature” of women in the open technology and culture community, so we can know what areas to work on and whether the Ada Initiative is making a difference for women in the community.
The survey takes only 5 minutes to do. Take the census now! The census closes on March 29th, 2011.
