Taking Part in Outreachy

1 Comment

I am pleased to announced that The Perl Foundation will be taking part in Outreachy, the successor of the Outreach Program for Women.

The Outreach Program for Women was started by the GNOME Foundation in 2006 to encourage women to participate in the GNOME project. Since inception the project has grown to include many Free and Open Source organisations, including The Perl Foundation, and now the program has been rebranded and extended to encourage the participation of all underrepresented groups.

We are offering one full-time internship in the summer program which will run from May 25th to August 25th. The application process is now open and applications need to be submitted by March 24th.

We have mentors from Dancer signed up to provide projects ideas and you can read about the possible projects on our information page.

This is great news. I was very pleased to see the Outreach Program for Womens rebranding to encompass all those underrepresented in FLOSS communities. I'm equally pleased to see the Perl Foundation continue to take part in this very positive program.
