Encourage contributions by people underrepresented in the community

Автор: Georgia Young Published on 2017-01-13 14:57
Free software relies on contributions from community members. But systemic barriers often prevent interested individuals from becoming contributors, especially when those individuals are from groups that have been historically marginalized.

The free software movement is a movement for everyone's freedom. It cannot succeed if it does not expand and make the effort to welcome all people.

Initiatives like Outreachy provide support and opportunities for underrepresented people to engage with free software projects and become active contributors. By actively working to empower many kinds of people to contribute to free software, the project introduces entire communities to the concept of software freedom, via members of their community. More contributors and users, and a greater diversity of thought and experience, make the free software community stronger.
