COS Blog: Diversity and inclusion in the open science movement

lkfitz's bookmarks 2017-06-05


"Two items this past week point to challenges for diversity and inclusion in open science.  First, a WIRED story reported evidence that gender diversity in open source software is even worse than in technology more generally.  A paltry 3% identified as female, compared to BLS statistics suggesting that 22.6% of programmers are female.  And, second, a sprawling twitter discussion (partly here) indicated that there is work to do in making the open science movement more inclusive."
