Did you know the Women of OpenStack isn't just for people who identify as
female, but allies as well? Well now you do and we're looking for new

Our mission statement is:

The Women of OpenStack (WOO) strive to increase the diversity of the
OpenStack community by overcoming OpenStack's barrier to entry through
educational sessions, professional networking, mentorship, social
inclusion, and enhanced resource access. WOO recognizes that individuals in
minority groups are more likely to have challenges accessing the resources
it takes to learn and participate in complex technologies, which is why WOO
welcomes all women and their allies who share an interest in OpenStack,
open source, and adjacent technologies. These goals are achieved through
leading and sponsorship of educational sessions and social events that
promote inclusion in the OpenStack Community.

We follow this mission by sponsoring ongoing Mentoring throughout the year
and through the Speed Mentoring and Lunch and Learns which are held during
summit as well as other activities through the year.
