FYI: New Training Course on Diversity in Open Source


Chris Aniszczyk
 

As a follow up from previous discussions on D&I training, we at The Linux Foundation in partnership with NCWIT are launching a new course on building inclusive open source communities that CNCF helped fund: https://training.linuxfoundation.org/announcements/linux-foundation-and-ncwit-release-free-training-course-on-diversity-in-open-source/

We should consider making this as a graduation requirement or even as part of project acceptance, food for thought as we ramp up for kubecon + cloudnativecon next week!

I’d like to see all project maintainers taking this at all maturity levels

Probably getting carried away here, but it would be nice if we could automate this, a bit like CLA bots: automatically flagging up anyone who’s listed in a Maintainers file if they haven’t taken the course

Hi,

Just completed it (takes ~20 min) and definitely can recommend it to all who maintain projects on open source! 🤗 

It's actionable and insightful, +1 to make it mandatory.

BTW, direct training link: https://training.linuxfoundation.org/training/inclusive-open-source-community-orientation-lfc102/ (it's free)

Kind Regards,

Thanks!

Liz I have added this as a requirement per the project proposal process: https://github.com/cncf/toc/pull/570

We can discuss at the next TOC meeting to vote/finalize the changes, but I think the best place to put the requirement is at the project proposal phase where we can easily check against the initial list of maintainers. In the future, we can try to do something fancy like an automated audit report based on what's in maintainers.cncf.io and if they have taken the course.

Thanks Chris. 

We could also require it for TOC members & SIG chairs too

Let's put it as a discussion item for the next meeting and consider rolling it out in 2021

Chris,

I just completed the course and it's extremely valuable. As already mentioned and noted for next TOC agenda, this should be a must for all leadership positions in CNCF.

It took me > 1 hour to listen all audio transcripts and taking the quiz, but a great use of time. Here is the direct link: https://trainingportal.linuxfoundation.org/learn/course/inclusive-open-source-community-orientation-lfc102/

Thanks,
Arun

Should we make it mandatory (which I think is a good idea), it would be useful to cross reference kubernetes who took the same approach for all leaders (I did the course as part of product security). That way we won't be nagging people to do training they have already completed.

Thanks, this is a discussion point for the TOC but I think the reality will be a roll out in 2021 at some level.

Also thank you Arun for pushing me to get this done in time for kubecon :)

Please continue taking the course and offer feedback, we plan on reserving budget every 1-2 years to do a refresh.
