Development Gateway

For The Promotion Of Feminist Open Government And Open Data

Overview
This grant to Development Gateway is to support Open Heroines, an online global community of women who work on open government, open data, and civic technology. Open Heroines will provide support for women, especially from countries that are historically underrepresented in global fora, to attend different "open"-related conferences. During these events, Open Heroines will organize various "do-a-thons" during which people with different skill sets collaborate on open data projects to apply a gender lens. Open Heroines will gather information and carry out a mapping exercise to identify and better understand the barriers and challenges that women face in their career path in open government, open data, and/or civic technology.

for support of Open Heroines, a feminist community of women in the governance spaces  
This grant to Development Gateway is to support Open Heroines (OH), an online global community of hundreds of women who work in open government, open data, and/or civic technology (known as open+sectors). OH will hire a community coordinator to manage the network, facilitate skill-share sessions, and organize local events. It will also hire a program manager to create a support group for women to share their stories, bring to the fore common issues and challenges, and become ambassadors to advocate for healthy work environments for women to work and thrive in the open+sectors. Through products like blogs, social media, and guides, OH seeks to elevate feminist views in thought leadership and policy development in the open+sectors. (Substrategy: Governance Channels)
