Support the Ada Initiative

I support the Ada Initiative, because they do awesome things that need doing:

The Ada Initiative supports women in open technology and culture through activities such as producing codes of conduct and anti-harassment policies, advocating for gender diversity, teaching ally skills, and hosting conferences for women in open tech/culture.

There’s nothing in there that’s not spectacular and necessary. And profoundly relevant to libraries, especially as our interactions with the tech world grow deeper and more ubiquitous.

Plus, right now there’s a campaign going on where the library community will be matching donations:

Donate to the Ada Initiative

The Ada Initiative deserves your support, including your financial support if that’s within your means. If you don’t believe me, believe Amy Buckland and Barbara Fister. (If you don’t believe them, than I’m not sure I can help you.)
