Programs for Women Attending LinuxCon 2016
Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the Linux ecosystem, and it is our goal to make sure that everyone and anyone that wants to become a contributor and/or member of the community has the resources to do so, and feels welcome to be a part of the community. To further these goals, we are pleased to offer several events/programs for women attending LinuxCon this year.
Women in Open Source Lunch
We'd like to invite all of our women attendees to join each other for a networking lunch at LinuxCon + ContainerCon. This is a chance to connect with each other onsite. We will begin with a brief introduction and then guests will be free to enjoy lunch and mingle with one another. All attendees must identify as a woman and will need to register to attend.
Register to attend today! Spots are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis.
When: Monday, August 22
Time: 12:35 pm - 2:00 pm
Where: Harbour Ballroom B, Westin Harbour Castle Toronto
We want to make sure that everyone who feels like they can both benefit and contribute to LinuxCon has the chance to be there, even if funds are low. This year, we are encouraging folks that might fall into that category to apply for discounted or waived registration fees so they can join us! Click here for more information and to apply.
