The People Who Support Linux: Linux Skills Land Job for This Linux Lady

Deborah Wazir says Linux helped her land her current job.

She says she was first introduced to Linux in the late 90s in the form of a Knoppix Live CD that she glanced at and put away. Ten years later a recruiter refused to submit her resume for a position because it didn't specifically say she had Linux experience (even though she had 20+ years of Unix experience).

Diversity, Freedom and Education at the Open World Forum

The starting point of the track titled Think Tank - Open Diversity Summit: Why women matter? was more or less "Women constitute 25 to 30 per cent of wider engineering community, but only 1/2% in Free/Open Source software development. Why, and what are the consequences?". Here are, as food for thought, some comments from ladies attending the track:
(in FOSS) women are told to start with documentation, translation and similar support activities. We must not settle for that, there's more to do.

This is really a cultural issue, quite different from country to country. I (background: highly educated Indian family) went to a software engineering college in the USA where I had zero white women as classmates.
