OpenPOWER Summit North America 2021

October 28, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm PDT

OpenPOWER Summit brings together leaders, members, and contributors of the OpenPOWER community and ecosystem. In 2021, we’re remaining virtual to learn and engage with the community that is building OpenPOWER silicon, systems, and applications.

RISC-V Activities:

The Open Hardware Diversity Alliance: What it is, why it’s here, and how you can get involved!
Kim McMahon, Director Visibility & Community

The Open Hardware Diversity Alliance formed in August 2021 with a partnership between RISC-V, Chips Alliance, OpenPower Foundation, Western Digital, and IBM with a mission to provide programs to encourage participation and support the professional advancement of women and underrepresented individuals in open source hardware.

We asked ourselves:

  • Why are there few women and underrepresented individuals in the open hardware community?
  • Is it because open hardware is hard to navigate?
  • Is career progression a mystery?
  • Is it a lack of visibility of the talent in open hardware to the community?

In this presentation, Kim will share information about the Alliance, what we have done, what has worked, and didn’t work, and invite anyone interested to join us! This is an interactive presentation, where Kim will also ask the audience to participate in the conversation.
