Outreachy: Expanding Participation in Open Source

GSB 110

Cindy Pallares-Quezada will discuss Outreachy, a paid internship program for people from groups traditionally underrepresented in tech. Learn how you can work with Outreachy, either as an intern or as a mentor, about our interns’ experiences, and how to convince your employer to become involved.

Cindy is an engineer at GitLab. She started learning to program by contributing to OpenStack, a free and open-source platform for cloud computing. She is passionate about free and open source software, technology, and accessibility.
