The Open Source Initiative
Dear OSI Community, 

Advancing the Careers of Technical Women [1] (ACT-W) is hosting two
action-packed events where talented women and individuals can build skills,
grow their community, and accelerate their career path! 

ACT-W has invited the OSI to participate and we're looking for local open
source leaders, experts, advocates to help spread the word about open
source software and communities, and how they help advance careers for
women in technology. The conference includes speaking sessions, hands-on
workshops, one-on-one coaching sessions, career fairs, and much more. 

If you're passionate about promoting open source to advance technology and
the communities that enable it, and currently living in/near Seattle or
Chicago (or know someone who is), we'd like to invite you to represent the
OSI during the conference. You can learn more about the conferences at,
https://opensource.org/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=1599&qid=160029 [2] (Seattle) and https://opensource.org/sites/all/modules/civicrm/extern/url.php?u=1600&qid=160029 [3]

As part of the event, you'll staff the OSI booth to help enterprising
developers, folks launching start-ups, and others looking for enter tech
careers learn about open source software, development opportunities, and
how working in and with the open source community can build professional
networks and advance careers. 

If you're local to Chicago or Seattle, and interested in helping out,
please contact me at masson@opensource.org. We're happy to cover any costs
for your travel, food, etc. and can even offer a $100 stipend on top of

Thank you for your support,
