Skilling for the future: How GitHub is advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion within open source communities
In the coming months, we’re scaling, expanding, and launching new programming to further DEI within open source communities.
The GitHub Education Stream Team is adding new shows. Job-hunting graduate? New to coding? No matter where you are, there's a show for you.
Have you heard about the GitHub Education Stream Team a.k.a. GEST? They are student developers taking over Campus TV. From game shows to live coding challenges, the student-led program provides viewers with resources, connections, community, and fun.
GEST is adding shows every week from around the world. Are you a recent graduate looking for a job? Are you new to coding and looking for resources? No matter where you are in your learning journey, there is a show for you. The Stream Team is committed to building communities through engaging and meaningful content on Campus TV. Together we can grow the technology community one stream at a time.
Iqrah Nadeem is graduating this year with a degree in computer science. Like many recent and soon-to-be graduates, Iqrah is exploring job opportunities and ways to break into the tech industry. After watching live streamed game shows on YouTube and Twitch, Iqrah was inspired to host a live stream game show of her own to highlight uncommon job titles in tech. Recognizing that she isn’t the only recent grad, Iqrah created What in the tech do I do to support other young developers as they find their way after graduation.
The show brings together students and industry professionals to showcase unconventional job titles and career paths. Do you know what a Music and Sound Technology and Tech Lawyer does? Watch episode 5 to find out.
Let’s uncover tech, one degree, and a job title at a time! Catch What in the tech do I do every Friday at 5pm UTC+1 and watch as students play hangman to uncover exciting jobs in tech. Are you a fan of the show? Follow Iqrah on YouTube for more content.
The Stream Team is about more than just content. It is also about shared experiences. When interviewing Iqrah, she mentioned technical difficulties during her first show. If you have experienced glitches and hiccups while running online events, you are not alone. That is why we created the GitHub Virtual Event Kit. Get the tools you need to run a successful online event at no cost.
What makes a speaker engaging and inspiring? It often comes down to relatability. That is the motivation behind Hadith Tech. Abdurrahman Rajab is creating a trusted space to celebrate local sources and talent in the MENA region.
The goal of the show is to empower viewers by bringing together local technologists who share similar experiences, language, and culture with the audience. Seeing a speaker who looks like you and speaks your language is important, but does not always happen. That is why Abdurrahman created this show. Hadith Tech will stream in Arabic, as speakers proudly reflect the region and language of the viewers.
What can you look forward to? You’ll hear from technologists with unique backgrounds and careers, such as:
What makes these speakers so special? The speakers work with unconditional love for the region as they share their experiences, expertise, and time. They are not only participating in the show, but also providing feedback and mentorship to Abdurrahman as he launches an important show to spotlight local talent.
Ready to be inspired? Watch Hadith Tech every Sunday at 7pm GMT+3.
