Improving Gender Diversity in the Julia Community

07/29/2021, 8:00 PM8:10 PM UTC

The Julia community aims to be welcoming, diverse, inclusive towards people from all backgrounds. However, the 2020 Julia User & Developer Survey found that only 3% of respondents were women, and reported no respondents who were non-binary or another gender. We, Julia Gender Inclusive, believe this needs to change. In this talk, we will share our ideas and initiatives for improving gender diversity among Julia users and developers, including outreach, community building, and mutual support.

Discussing Gender Diversity in the Julia Community

BoF/Mini Track

Julia Gender Inclusive is an initiative that came to life from a focus group that has been working on diversity in the Julia community for the last year. We are a group of people whose gender is underrepresented in the community and aim at providing a supportive space for all gender minorities in the Julia community. Through a BoF session we wish to discuss what we are doing and what we hope to do in the future with other people whose gender is underrepresented or allies willing to support us.
