Expanding the Tent - Beth Lynn Eicher, Jonathan Nadeau, Deb Nicholson

Growing a movement requires proactive efforts to reach new audiences and recruit new leaders who represent currently underrepresented groups. Hear about the need to expand the tent, and some of the ways to do it, from people who are working towards a more diverse free software movement. Deb Nicholson will talk about her work with The Ada Initiative and OpenHatch, which is focused on recruiting and retaining more women in free software, plus making it easier for new people to get involved. Jonathan Nadeau will speak to just how crucial free software is for people who depend on assistive technology. And Beth Lynn Eicher will talk about her work as Free Software Director of Computer Reach, which deploys free software to developing countries like Ghana.

The views and opinions expressed herein are those of the speaker and do not necessarily reflect those of the Free Software Foundation.
