About Fedora Women’s Day

Fedora Women’s Day (FWD) is a day of celebration to raise awareness and gratitude for women contributors across the Fedora Project. Fedora Women’s Day marks the anniversary of the Fedora Women team. The event is headed by Fedora’s Diversity and Inclusion Team.

Across September, we encourage more women contributors across Fedora to connect and network with one another. Fedora Women’s Day highlights and celebrates the women of open source communities like Fedora and their contributions to their projects and community. They are also an opportunity for women to learn about free and open source software and jump-start their journey as a user of FOSS and/or become a contributor. They also provide a platform for women to connect, learn, and be inspired by other women in open source communities and beyond.
