Panel at OSBridge: Good news for diversity in open source 2012-2013

If you’re like us, sometimes you get discouraged by all the bad news you hear about women in open technology and culture. It’s hard to keep fighting when it feels like you’re not making progress.

That’s why we organized a panel discussion to focus on the good news at the upcoming Open Source Bridge conference in Portland, Oregon. The topic of the panel is “Diversity in open source: What’s changed in 2012 and 2013.” We will use this panel we will tell some of the many success stories in improving diversity in open source software in the last couple of years.

We are lucky to have a diverse, talented, and funny set of panelists, including:
