Today, Systers broadly promotes the interests of women in the computing and technology fields. Anita created Systers to “increase the number of women in computer science and make the environments in which women work more conducive to their continued participation in the field.” The Systers community serves this purpose by providing women a private space to seek advice from their peers, and discuss the challenges they share as women technologist.

Computer science has always been a male-dominated field, right? Wrong. In 1987, 42% of the software developers in America were women. And 34% of the systems analysts in America were women. Girls Go Geek… Again!
The Computer Boys Take Over In my Information Society course this week we talked about the rise to dominance of IBM in the late 1950s and early 1960s, and in particular the role of the IBM System/360 system as a strategy for encouraging what we would today refer to as vendor lock-in. The rapid pace of development in computer hardware in this period meant that customers were frequently upgrading their equipment, and every such moment of decision was the opportunity (or risk, depending on your perspective) for a customer to consider an IBM competitor. By providing an entire line of software compatible System/360 computers, IBM leveraged the socio-technical complexity of a computer installation to its own advantage.
April, Groupe de travail « Diversité » Contexte Ce groupe interne, créé en janvier 2008, travaille à la diversité des membres de l'April. Le groupe de travail diversité de l'April vise à promouvoir l'accueil de toutes les différences dans le monde du Libre. Si le constat révèle une certaine homogénéité des profils (hommes, blancs, éduqués, informaticiens...), tout le monde est concerné par la liberté et chacun peut trouver sa place. Les valeurs du libre, l'ouverture des logiciels et la disponibilité de l'information portent un universalisme qui a vocation à être approprié par tous. Ainsi, plutôt que de se focaliser sur le constat d'un manque de diversité, et alors que tout le monde s'accorde pour dire que favoriser la diversité c'est faire la place à des expériences et des points de vue différents, source d'enrichissement pour tous, le groupe de travail diversité se donne pour mission de promouvoir la diversité dans le monde du Libre afin de faciliter l'accueil d'un public aux profils variés.
