Yesterday, we posted an excerpt of an interview with Ada Initiative advisor Karen Sandler in March, focused on the GNOME Outreach Program for women, and the ways that women support each other and advocate for the GNOME community.
Thanks Karen, your help has been really valuable!
The transcribed part of Karen’s video has been subtitled using Amara. Help subtitle the rest of the video!
More about the Ada Initiative’s work
Karen introduced you to two of the Ada Initiative’s projects: AdaCamps and conference anti-harassment policies.
AdaCamp is a series of small unconferences bringing together people interested in women in open technology and culture from across many different communities. We hope it will spark new ideas, spread best practices, and be a catalyst for change. We have held two AdaCamps in 2012, in Melbourne and in Washington DC.
Inspired by multiple reports of groping, sexual assault, and pornography at open tech/culture conferences, the Ada Initiative co-founders helped write and promote an example conference anti-harassment policy for modification and reuse by conference organizers. See the Ada Initiative’s Conference policies page for more about our work supporting conferences in creating a safe environment for women and others.
The Ada Initiative relies on donations and sponsorship to fund our important work. Find out how to support us!
