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."
