Only about 1.5% of the people involved in open source are women, leaving us terribly underrepresented. In the Drupal world, we're up to a whopping
7% 10% 17%, which only gets us to awfully unrepresented. ;) This group is for anyone (male, female, or otherwise) who believes that we can do better and wants to help.
So if you:
- are a woman who needs some help/guidance in order to get (more) involved with Drupal and the Drupal community
- are a woman who wants to network and get to know other women involved in Drupal
- are anyone who has ideas on things we can do to help encourage women to participate in Drupal
...then this is the group for you. :)
This group is specifically not for job postings, so please keep those off this list. Thanks.
Posting a bunch of the DrupalChix logo files here for posterity, so everyone can find and use them whenever they need!
I had to turn the big file from Naxoc into a .gz file to upload it here, but FYI it contains several .pngs in different colours plus on .eps file. This is the file "drupalchixlogos.tar_.gz"
Got the other set from Rainbreaw, which is the file "drupalchixlogos2.tar_.gz" - it has the two different versions of the Drupalchix logo that they created for LA Drupal. She says:
There have been a number of comments about how to find other women in Drupal. We're scattered around, but maybe not as much as we think. And it would be nice to know if there are other DrupalChix nearby. Maybe it could even lead to some regional DrupalChix get-togethers :-)Read more

I have a project that I've used Drupal 7, Ubercart 3 on and has already launched. After launch, client informs me of their specialized search needs for products.
The use case is all results matching a string of 3 or more consecutive characters, including a mix of upper case, lower case, numbers and punctuation ('tet' should return anything with tetanus, rgTet9-66, etc) from sku and title field.Read more
With only about 17% - 20% of DrupalCon attendees being women, or those who identify as women, we know that it can feel lonely while you are walking around the event, especially if this is your first DrupalCon.
Come and meet other women in drupal and the local technology community.

Hi Drupal ladies,
I know this group is not for job postings, so I'll keep this to a 'meta' question about recruiting. I'm hiring for a full-time position in Los Angeles (several actually, but all but one are "mostly" filled now) and I've seen very little gender diversity in the candidates that my recruiters and my own HR department are sending me. Certainly less than the 17%. (I've reviewed at least 20 candidates, only one female.)Read more

Hey there all...
Our Drupalistas Study Group tripled in size this last round (from 5 to 15 !! :) ). We are not a big group, but we ARE having a good time learning Drupal in quick, bite-sized chunks. It has been loads of fun. So much fun, in fact, we are starting another "track" of learning.Read more

A bit last minute I know, but. Is there still people out there who need a ticket?
If so, then either contact me here or on twitter: tinefin.
