Hi,
Right now the GNOME Outreach Program for Women are accepting
applications (deadline 19 March) [1,2]. I find it strange (and of sad)
that Mozilla are not officially participating in this round of
the program when Mozilla have done it before [3]. Is there any
particular reason this?

I think the program represents an excellent opportunity to increase
the participation in the project as well as to introduce poeple
(femle) to free/open source collaboration.

I guess its to late to start a infinitive around the current round,
given that the application deadline are on March 19. I think we should
work to ensure that this situation do not occur again (if there is no
particular reason for Mozilla not to participate in the program).

Hi, Oliver!

I'm the coordinator for our current (amazing) OPW cohort, which is just wrapping up. We intend to participate in this next round (and can still join, I am told) but our funding model has shifted and we don't want to advertise the opportunities until the budget is firm.

I expect that assuming this is all resolved, we will be putting up opportunities soon.

The OPW intern caliber has been outstanding, and I am very optimistic that we will continue the project. I agree with you that it is important that we stay involved.

Larissa
