I'm deeply interested in how welcoming and inclusive outreach strategies can transform a community of open source contributors, and in exploring how greater inclusivity leads to better software and better community. I've been deeply involved in our project's first-timers-only outreach and in working to invite those new to coding, and those from groups under-represented in software contribution, into our community as contributors and leaders.
