CHAOSS Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Working Group


The DEI working group meets every Wednesday at 10:00am US Central / 3:00pm UTC / 5:00 pm Central Europe Time via Zoom

Agenda and Meeting Minutes


Diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to the health of open source communities. The CHAOSS Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Working Group aims to define metrics and methods to help others measure and center diversity, equity, and inclusion in their own Open Source projects. The CHAOSS DEI Working Group establishes and broadly communicates an ethical, peer-validated, research-informed, set of standards and best practices for measuring diversity, equity, and inclusion in Open Source projects. We invite anyone interested in the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion to learn more, and join us. See Contributing below to become part of our community.

This project is open to anyone interested in the topic of diversity, equity, and inclusion. And this includes several areas of work such as diversity, equity, and inclusion from a broader perspective, mining software repositories, Python development, tech writing, people interested in speaking at events and others.

The collaboration guide is still in progress, but we’ve provided a few steps as good starting points:
