My note: Accidentally or suddenly changing the criteria regarding who is allowed to have a certain platform is always going to be messy at best and often discriminatory.

Public Voices Fellowship — The OpEd Project
Public Voices Fellowship

The OpEd Project’s Public Voices Fellowship is a national initiative first piloted at Yale, Stanford and Princeton Universities, and now rolling out in partnership with top universities and foundations across the nation. Learn more about our Public Voices Fellowship partners.

The goal is to dramatically increase the public impact of our nation's top underrepresented thinkers, and to ensure our ideas help shape the important conversations of our age. The root problem is not a lack of knowledge or experience, but a culture in which minority voices (especially women) rarely have the inside information, high-level support and inside connections to become influential on a large scale. The OpEd Project has successfully led programs with scores of major organizations and universities, and we have had stunning results.

Each Public Voices Fellowship is customized for approximately 20 women and underrepresented thought leaders at each institution. Fellowships last one year and in most cases lead to ongoing partnerships. If you are interested in bringing the Public Voices Fellowship to your institution, contact us.

Improve the Bus Factor - Libraries.io
" What's the bus factor?

The Bus factor is the number of key developers who would need to be incapacitated to make a project unable to proceed.

This page shows libraries that are depended upon by many other libraries but have only ever had a handful of contributors commit to the project.

You can help out by reviewing the code for these projects, helping out with open issues and pull requests and lending the maintainers a helping hand if required.

This is an experiment based on contributions and available dependency data from package manager repositories that make it easily available. "
