Abstract

While software badges present solutions for most goals of software development, no badge had been created to support D&I initiatives. The D&I Badging Initiative aims to advance these efforts. A D&I badging system in open source aims to help send signals that D&I is a priority to the community. In this FUSE project, I and the open source community built an open source D&I badging system that provides technology-centered events the ability to make their diversity and inclusion practices more transparent.
