Diversity in open source projects is worse than in tech overall. When GitHub surveyed 5,500 open source users and developers from around the world on a range of topics, it also asked for demographic information. Of that randomly selected cohort, a full 95 percent of respondents were male. Only three percent identified as female.

This panel discussion will be focused on what we can and should do to increase the number of people with different backgrounds, skill sets and experience working on open source projects. The panel comprises of 3 women who work on various key aspects of the Istio project and participate in the Cloud Native community.
