Greetings visitor., 😉
Every time our community mainly focuses on recruiting new students to involve in FSA program. As of now we targeted most of our friends, this time, we invited women into the community as we heard from alot of people that some young girls are very much interested to join in the community but they cant step ahead. So, to make them step ahead into our Mozillian community and to contribute their part to the open source- we called for a Womoz pop-up on June 7th,2015
Infact, due to the summer vacation, Many of the interested girls couldn’t attended the event as they were off to some where 😛 But still, we managed to gather with few active/ interested girls in our community. Its indeed a first chance for us to intrigue our the attendees towards open source by sharing our knowledge, experience being a Mozillian, which made us to plan well in prior to the gathering with my fellow supportees Sumanth and Jayesh ( Did i say these people are a part of our community since i started my journey 😛 :D)
On the day of Womoz Pop-up., we’re really excited to take our community to next level by joining women into our group. We all gathered with a few minutes delay, later on i introduced myself and about community followed by everyone about themselves. Then the meet went on well briefing about various communities and Mozilla anyway i mentioned the take away of the meet at the end 😉 .
We had an interactive session with new girls about our education backdrop, what made us to step into Mozillian community, how FSA’s & Mozillians from all over India are contributing and shared our experiences, later on we had a hangout call with B Boy (Akshay RAL-REP, India) 😛 who explained the girls about open source, how women will be encouraged in open source communities for a few minutes, then again Jayesh, Sumanth n Me explained about areas of contribution.
