Open Source at Indeed: Sponsoring Outreachy

Indeed is committed to supporting the open source community. That’s why we’re excited to announce our sponsorship of Outreachy!

What is Outreachy?

Outreachy supports diversity and inclusion across the whole open source community. By providing paid internships to people from underrepresented groups, Outreachy creates meaningful opportunities for individuals to make real contributions to open source while helping to improve inclusion in the community. Open source benefits from diverse participation, and Outreachy is making a difference. Outreachy accepted 46 interns for the December 2018 to March 2019 round of internships. Find more information about their projects here.

Marina Zhurakhinskaya, Outreachy co-organizer, says: “Outreachy is excited to welcome Indeed as a sponsor and is grateful for the commitment from Indeed to support diversity in free and open source software. With the help from Indeed, we are able to support more Outreachy applicants making their first contributions to free and open source software and more interns gaining in-depth experience.”

Indeed and the Community

As we continue to take a more active role in the open source community, Indeed will seek out additional partnerships, sponsorships, and memberships. In addition to sponsoring Outreachy, this year Indeed joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and began sponsoring the Python Software Foundation, the Apache Software Foundation, the Open Source Initiative, and Webpack.
