AdaCamp DC will bring together a wide variety of people from open

technology and culture, all of whom are working to support women in

open tech/culture. We're looking for people who:

* Participate in open technology and culture: any field involving

open/grassroots/community participation and sharing the results of

your work for free: open data, open source software, wikis, open

government, open libraries, remix/fan culture, open video, and more

* Can share information about women's experiences in that field,

including talking about women's achievements and the challenges they


* Want to work together and share strategies to support and promote

women in the field

* Share the Ada Initiative's feminist approach to supporting and

promoting women in open technology and culture

* Are young and old; students, professionals and hobbyists; from a

diverse range of backgrounds; and reflect the breadth of the open

technology and culture field

AdaCamp is open to people of all genders. However, since AdaCamp and

the Ada Initiative exist to support and promote women in open

technology and culture, prospective attendees who are not themselves

women will need to demonstrate a high level of prior engagement and

experience with the issues faced by women in those fields in order to

be invited.
