Ubuntu Women Italy chapter class
The Ubuntu Classroom is happy to welcome Silvia Bindelli (Dolasilla) and Flavia Weisghizzi (Deindre) from the Ubuntu Women leadership team on Thursday, January 24th at 20:00 UTC team who will be presenting on UbuntuWomen-it, the Ubuntu Women chapter in Italy.
It all started around 3 years ago, when Flavia got in touch with Silvia, who she met through the UbuntuWomen group, proposing her to set up a localized chapter of the group. The idea came from the observation of the linguistic and cultural gap that may constitute a barrier to many women who, although interested in joining Ubuntu Women, don’t feel comfortable enough with a foreign language.
From then on there have been a lot: public talks throughout several events around Italy, tutoring for newcomers, a collaboration with an Italian blog dedicated to Women in technology, GirlGeekLife. Flavia and Silvia are happy to share their experience, because they both think that this idea may be brought to all locoteams, to help getting more women involved and contributing to the Ubuntu Community
This event will be held in #ubuntu-classroom on irc.freenode.net (#ubuntu-classroom-chat for questions).
