    Dear OSI Community,

    Advancing the Careers of Technical Women (ACT-W) is hosting
    two action-packed events where talented women and individuals
    can build skills, grow their community, and accelerate their
    career path!

    ACT-W has invited the OSI to participate and we're looking
    for local open source leaders, experts, advocates to help
    spread the word about open source software and communities,
    and how they help advance careers for women in technology.
    The conference includes speaking sessions, hands-on workshops,
    one-on-one coaching sessions, career fairs, and much more.

    If you're passionate about promoting open source to advance
    technology and the communities that enable it, and currently
    living in/near Seattle or Chicago (or know someone who is),
    we'd like to invite you to represent the OSI during the
    conference. You can learn more about the conferences at,
    http://seattle.act-w.org/ (Seattle) and http://chicago.act-w.org/

    As part of the event, you’ll staff the OSI booth to help
    enterprising developers, folks launching start-ups, and
    others looking for enter tech careers learn about open
    source software, development opportunities, and how working
    in and with the open source community can build professional
    networks and advance careers.

    Thank you for your support,
