This is an awesome opportunity to get more women working in open source. The graphic above gives the basic outline, but there are many more details on the info page here. It’s an opportunity to get more women working on Free and Open Source Software. Numerous companies working in this field recognize the talent and passion women bring to these projects, but also understand that many women may not know how to get their foot in the door. These internships provide a great (paid) first step, and were inspired by Google’s Summer of Code and how few women applied for it in the past. To get started, all you have to do is contribute to a project through one of the organizations like Tor, Mozilla, Wikimedia, or one of the others by Dec. 3rd. You can use skills you already have in marketing, documentation, design or programming to contribute. The organizations will work to redirect talented applicants that they can’t hire too. We’re happy to do what we can to help spread the word about this great opportunity.
