This is the main page for the Fedora Diversity Day, which is a FAD focused on review and finish our current coals and define the next plans to improve the Diversity efforts in our community.


Fedora Diversity is a new initiative in Fedora community. This is to support and encourage all kind of different people to join and contribute in Fedora. Since we are new, we have planned to accomplish some primary goals of the diversity team. In our very first FAD, we have few objectives to accomplish i.e. Diversity Survey, Diversity Marketing Campaign and COC Expansion.

We would like to achieve our goal of Diversity Survey, Diversity Marketing Campaign And COC Expansion via brainstorming, experience exchange, sessions/discussions, presentations, video making and blog posts.

Primary Goals

  1. Diversity Survey
    • Define strategies for the usage of the Survey
    • Finish the questionnaire
    • Select tool
    • Define timeline
  2. Diversity Marketing Campaign
    • Define reach of the campaign
    • Use first survey results to create focus groups
  3. CoC expansion
    • Discuss in deep CoC to see if it's wide enough against the current harassment and bullying cases we have

Secondary Goals

In addition, we will attempt to complete the following secondary goals as time allows:

  1. Make adjustments to the working process of the Diversity Team, to fulfill in the future all upcoming tasks
  2. Work towards clearing out the Fedora Diversity Team tickets queue, Tickets
  3. Collect the pictures from all the locations for video making

Q & A

  1. Why Diversity Survey?
    • Numbers are important for the Fedora project in every aspect. We would like to drill down how many contributors belong to which minority group and what issues they are facing and how we can help them. This is going to be first of its kind and will help understand the diverse dimensions of the Fedora community at a high level.
  2. Why Diversity Marketing Campaign?
    • Fedora Diversity is an important project for onboarding new Fedora Contributors from diverse areas and it is more important to be inclusive. It is critical for two Fedora objectives - building open source diverse communities and developing the science and practice of diverse communities. We're looking to engage a more diverse people pool to further open source, and focusing on an underrepresented discipline within FLOSS/Fedora and making sure the investment we're putting into diversity will give us returns in reaching those folks is a good one.
  3. Why during devconf?
    • We would like to take help and guidance from FPL and few other folks, who may attend devconf and it will easy to reach out to them, if we align the FAD with devconf in terms of date and location.
  • Add your question here and we're happy to answer.


The completion of these goals will create the following positive change within the project:
