|Outreachy:||Round 5 • Round 6 • Round 7 • Round 8 • Round 9 • Round 10|
Wikimedia is a proud participant of Outreachy (was FOSS Outreach Program for Women until 2014), a program that runs two editions every year. In this program we connect people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software with possible projects and possible mentors in a three-month, full-time internship.
Learn more about our motivation and goals to run this program: FLOSS internship programs as catalysts for richer community collaboration.
