During the month of September, we'd like to help bring women contributors across Fedora together with one another. This is a great time to network with other women in Fedora, listen to stories from others in the project, and recognize each other's achievements. This event is primarily a virtual event, and there are plans to do a group audio and/or video call with other women and groups across the world. If you are a local contributor, you are encouraged to try organizing a local meetup. If you are trying to organize an event within your region, contact your regional [[Ambassadors]] for budgetary concerns.
During September, we'd like to bring more women contributors across Fedora together with one another. Fedora Women's Day events highlight and celebrate the women in open source communities like Fedora and their invaluable contributions to their projects and community. They are an opportunity for women to learn about free and open source software and jump-start their journey as a FOSS user and/or a contributor. They also provide a platform for women to connect, learn, and be inspired by other women in open source communities and beyond.
