Watching +Sarah Sharp's keynote will make you a better person and a better open source community member.
My keynote from #scale14x  is up! I talked about how to increase diversity in open source communities in a systematic manner, using Maslow's hierarchy of needs. https://www.youtube.com/embed/rUDgDSKdSPo?t=24m52s

Notes, resources, links to studies mentioned, and slides can be found on my blog: http://sarah.thesharps.us/2016/01/24/scale-improving-diversity-with-maslows-hierarchy/

To me, +Crystal Huff joining as the new Executive Director of +Ada Initiative means that we are growing our leadership and shared responsibility for inclusion in open technology and culture. It's a thrilling feeling and I'm delighted to welcome Crystal! Many props to our first Executive Director and co-founder +Valerie Aurora, who is staying in the role of Director of Training, for initiating and ensuring a smooth succession.
