Abstract

The OpenStack Foundation's goal is to “promote the global development,
distribution and adoption of open infrastructure." As in many other open source communities, and in the technology industry as a whole, the OpenStack community experienced a lack of representation of females and
underrepresented minorities, a fact that should be supported with evidence. Intel and Bitergia have conducted an assessment of the current state of gender diversity within the community, examining both code and non-code contributions, including leadership, governance, and event representation, among other elements. In this paper, the authors summarize the results of this assessment and discuss the importance of data to increase awareness of the topic and later use those numbers to improve the diversity and inclusion within the OpenStack community. This is the first comprehensive analysis of the OpenStack gender diversity status and has opened the possibility to extend this to other
communities.
