Outreachy is a diversity initiative of Software Freedom Conservancy.
Outreachy's goal is to increase diversity in open source. Past Outreachy interns are:
♀️ 92% women
🏳️🌈 4% transgender, genderqueer, or non-binary people
🧕🏾 64% people of color
🧑🏿 12% people from a historically disadvantaged caste or tribe
Statistics are based on responses to the 2019 longitudinal study of Outreachy alums.
Outreachy expressly invites women (both cis and trans), trans men, and genderqueer people to apply. We also expressly invite applications from residents and nationals of the United States of any gender who are Black/African American, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American/American Indian, Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian, or Pacific Islander.
Anyone who faces under-representation, and systemic bias or discrimination in the technology industry of their country is invited to apply.
We are seeking open source communities to be mentors! A call for mentors for the December 2022 internship cohort will open in August.
