Intuit: Live Webinar: Open Source: The Future is Female

Did you know that only 6% of total Open Source contributions have come from female technologists/engineers? That changes now! Join us on Tuesday, July 14th 2020 for International Women in Engineering Day as we bring together a panel of passionate Intuit technologists who want to inspire change in Open Source contributions. We’ll talk about why it's important to have a diverse, inclusive, and innovative Open Source Community and our technologists will share their Open Source projects and contributions. We’ll also take questions from the audience for a special Q&A session.
