It is no secret that many open-source projects have a diversity problem that is shortchanging them in key areas including leadership and productivity. Let's make 2021 the year we overcome this issue!

 

As the 2020 StackOverflow survey pointed out, technology companies – and many open-source communities – have a diversity problem. While the majority of developers currently come from a white, male background, the momentum is shifting to create more inclusive, diverse communities.

Research shows that diverse open source projects are more productive and make better decisions. This starts with creating teams that have a greater representation of gender, race, socioeconomic standings, ethnic backgrounds, and the like.
