Hello DPL candidates,
A question about diversity. We all know that some profiles are
underrepresented: gender, etnic group, disability, age, sexual preference,
education degree, rich/poor, spoken & written languages...
1/ One way of addressing this, is actively BENEFIT the underrepresented
profiles. Positive discriminiation is needed, at least to get over an initial
resistance. Put diversity in the spotlights, to speed up improvement.
2/ Another way is active NEUTRALITY treating everyone alike. No discrimination,
positive nor negative. Make room for diversity to evolve. Diversity
matters, although in the shadow of free software.
3/ ... ?
Now the QUESTION ---> What is your view on this? Your preferred approach? What
is the priority of diversity? Practical action points, how to measure progress?
