Galois turns cutting edge research in computer science, mathematics, and engineering into real-word solutions, and releases many of the results as open source. An employee-owned company located in Portland, Oregon, Galois specializes in work that impacts privacy, security, and safety for society as a whole, particularly through the application of language design and formal methods.

Galois will match up to $1000 of donations to the Ada Initiative in the next 24 hours, until 9am August 24th PDT (16:00 UTC). Donate now:

Adam FoltzerGalois Researcher Adam Foltzer says, “Stewardship is a core principle at Galois, and I love that our mission includes both turning research into working code and developing that technology for the common good. Increasing gender diversity in technology is critical to making sure that technology serves society as a whole. In living up to our core principle of stewardship, we’re proud to be a part of the great progress the Ada Initiative is making in bringing women into open source.”

We are happy to be partnering with a company that releases so much of its work as open source software, in order to support women in free and open source software. Our GitHub private repository giveaway helped over 500 women learn open source development without fear of harassment, and our AdaCamp unconference includes workshops to teach women how to write open source software.
