While it is well recognized that diversity and inclusion are central to the health of open source communities, numbers lag and the ability to foster inclusive environments remains challenging. The CHAOSS Project’s Diversity & Inclusion Workgroup is focused on establishing a set of community-curated, peer-validated, research-informed standards and best practices to measure, and in turn, increase, diversity and inclusion across open source communities.

This session brings together & moves concepts forward from previous presentations, focusing on insights from our latest work and outlining specifics of preparing reports to help communities increase the level of diversity and inclusion using a data-driven approach. The discussion includes a sample of metrics, how to collect them, and examples of such reports. Attendees will leave with an understanding of the value and process of creating a diversity and inclusion report, as well as how to get started and where to get help.
