Sorry, -1.  The foundation should not be building infrastructure around
an inherently sexist and discriminatory group. [This comment has nothing
to do with the participants -- it is the way the topic is defined.]

If the discussion list has helped identify specific problems that can
be addressed, or non-discriminatory topics (such as "communication")
upon which meaningful work can be performed regardless of gender,
then that is what you should be making a proposal about.
