The Linux Foundation launches free online inclusivity training

The Linux Foundation and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) have introduced an online training course that “delves into facts about diversity in tech, the importance of diversity for innovation, the basics of unconscious and societal bias, and how to recognize the different ways unconscious bias presents itself in technical environments.” According to data from the US Department of Labor statistics presented in the course, women hold 26% of computing jobs, 19% of software engineering positions, and account for only 11% of open-source developers.
