I have been aware of the Open Diversity Data project for awhile. It is the work of the wonderful members of Double Union and their community of awesome contributors. Recently, a Mozillian tweeted that Mozilla should release it’s Diversity Data. It is my understanding also that a discussion happened internally and for whatever reason a release of Mozilla’s diversity data did not entirely result although some numbers are available here.
Anyways, I’m now going to bring this suggestion up again and encourage that both Mozilla Corporation and Mozilla Foundation release individual diversity data reports in the form of some numbers, graphs and a blog post and perhaps a combined one of both orgs.
I would encourage other Mozillians to support the push for opening this data by sharing this blog post on the Social Media as an indicator of supporting Open Diversity Data publishing by Mozilla or by retweeting this.
I really think our Manifesto encourages us to support initiatives like this; specifically principle number two of our manifesto. If other companies (Kudos!) that are less transparent than Mozilla can do it then I think we have to do this.
Finally, I would like to encourage Mozilla to consider creating a position of VP of Diversity and Inclusion to oversee our various diversity and inclusion efforts and to help plan and create a vision for future efforts at Mozilla. Sure we have already people who kind of do this but it is not their full-time role.
Anyways that’s all I have on this…

Thanks to Jonathan Lin and Spencer Hui some of the talks that were presented at the recent “bootcamp” are appearing on Air Mozilla and more will do so as we get them ready. They’re all in Air Mozilla’s engineering channel: https://air.mozilla.org/channels/engineering/
Are you a Mozillian who uses Mercurial? Do you have a complaint, suggestion, observation, or any other type of feedback you'd like to give to the maintainers of Mercurial? Now's your chance.
There is a large gathering of Mercurial contributors next weekend in Munich. The topics list is already impressive. But Mozilla's delegation (Mike Hommey, Ben Kero, and myself) would love to advance Mozilla's concerns to the wider community.
