Outreachy is a paid, remote internship program. Internships last three months. Interns and mentors work completely remotely.
Outreachy’s goal is to improve diversity in open source. Past interns are 92% women, 64% people of color, and 12% from a historically disadvantaged caste or tribe. Interns come from around the world, with many interns located in India, Nigeria, and Uganda.
Outreachy is providing a grant to fund interns working with humanitarian open source communities. The Outreachy grant will pay for the internship stipend. This is an ideal chance to get a diverse set of people working with your humanitarian open source community.
If you need some ideas around self care, please read In Case Of Emergency, Break Glass, but these are my coping strategies and they may or may not work for you, in that case, I’ve compiled a few resources for dealing with shock and trauma.
First, of course, a qualifier – I am not a doctor.
If you think you might cause harm to yourself or others, please seek professional help.
I haven’t streamed on Wednesday mornings in four weeks. Maybe more. And I just realized it might be because of a tweet I took rather personally even though it wasn’t meant personally or maliciously whatsoever nor even meant as a slight against me.
Finally, today, after much discussion and thought and deciding I had rather made a mountain out of a molehill. Oh, yes, and another Wednesday morning without open source streaming, I pushed LIVE on a stream this afternoon and explained what happened.
