D&I Badging program aims to increase understanding of the open-source project and event practices that encourage greater diversity and wider inclusion of people from different backgrounds. It uses an open peer-review system to encourage projects and events to obtain badges and improve their processes and documentation to be more inclusive using the feedback they gain from the reviewers.
The program is affiliated with the CHAOSS project and a proud initiative of CHAOSS. The work of the Badging Program is closely associated with the CHAOSS D&I working group.
CHAOSS is a Linux Foundation project. For more information about CHAOSS, please visit the website at chaoss.community
The goal of the Diversity & Inclusion Badging Program is to encourage projects and events to obtain D&I badges for reasons of leadership, self-reflection, and self-improvement on issues critical to building the Internet as a social good.
The Badging Workflow
Events applying for a CHAOSS badge should fill in the submission form to open an issue under the corresponding GitHub repository, waiting for reviewers to give feedback.
