The Ada Initiative launches

Last night (midnight Sydney time!!) Valerie Aurora and I announced the Ada Initiative, a new non-profit organization promoting the participation of women in open technology and culture.

Per our announcement:

The Ada Initiative is focused on helping women get careers in open technology through recruitment and training programs for women, education for community members who want to help women, and working with corporations and projects to improve their outreach to women.

Hooray!

You can find out more at the Ada Initiative, and follow us in a multitude of venues: RSS, email announcements, Twitter and Facebook.
