Diversity and inclusion in Fedora

The Fedora Project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. Our community is based on mutual respect, tolerance, and encouragement, and we work to help each other live up to these principles. Please, refer to our Code of Conduct for more information. The Fedora Diversity and Inclusion team (Fedora D&I team) is committed to fostering diversity and inclusion in the Fedora community. You can watch our recent video showcasing the Fedora community here.


The goal of this initiative is to help foster diversity and inclusion in the Fedora community. The Fedora D&I team works towards this goal by focusing on efforts including (but not limited to):

  • Creating content and organizing events to spread awareness about diversity within Fedora and outside the Fedora community.

  • Supporting community building and engagement activities to foster inclusion.

  • Coordinating with Fedora SIGs and subprojects to futher foster diversity and inclusion in the community.

  • Supporting programs committed to building diversity and inclusion in Free and Open Source Software communities.

Current Projects

We are tracking our ongoing work and action items here in Pagure.

Fedora Women

Fedora Women aims to foster involvement of women (cis and trans) and genderqueer people in Fedora and Free and Open Source Software.


The Fedora D&I team organizes and supports a variety of events which help us achieve our goals. Here is the list of events. Please send us an email if you are interested in helping us organize events in your local community related to promoting diversity and inclusion in open source communities including Fedora.


The D&I team meets bi-weekly via IRC #fedora-diversity on Freenode at 12:30 UTC on Fridays. The calendar for future meetings is available here. Meeting logs are available at Meetbot.
