Subject RE: Encouraging More Women to Participate on Apache Projects?
Date Thu, 19 May 2016 15:38:52 GMT
We do not have current strategies. We've tried many things in the past but they've never really
succeeded. I'll not speculate on why, it's a complex issue.

What I will say (with my Presidents hat firmly on), is that if folks come up with a strategy
that is in line with our charitable mission then please don't hesitate to ask for any support
you need.
