The Open Hardware Diversity Alliance formed in September 2021 with a partnership between RISC-V, Chips Alliance, OpenPower Foundation, and Western Digital with a mission to provide programs to encourage participation and support the professional advancement of women and underrepresented individuals in open source hardware.

We asked ourselves: 
  • Why are there few women and underrepresented individuals in the open hardware community?
  • Is it because open hardware is hard to navigate? 
  • Is career progression a mystery? 
  • Is it a lack of visibility of the talent in open hardware to the community?
Kim and Marjan will talk about the goals of the Alliance, upcoming programs, and how you can get involved.  Sujata will join to share their experiences on how they got involved in technology and the path to success as a Technology Evangelist at Intel and a leader in the open source technology industry.
