Abstract:

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.
