Women make up less than 30% of the computing workforce and about 1.5% of contributions to open source projects. This is something that is important for both men and women alike to become aware of and to address.
This panel will focus on this gender gap and introduce you to people who are passionate about this issue. Join Razan Sadeq, Kristof Van Tomme, Alessia Rullo, Josef Dabernig and Jessica Rose in the Panel Discussion “Are Geeks from Mars and Geekettes from Venus?”.

Afterwards, we'll open up the floor for a Q&A session.
