Hi  Niclas

Thanks for the info. Taking a quick look at it and it seems that in general the Outreachy
program is not only women and within the US at least it's also open to under-represented groups.
I'll take a more detailed look at it to see if it could help us with encouraging diversity.

Thanks
Sharan
