On this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, TNS founder Alex Williams sat down with Nicole Huesman, Intel senior global marketing manager and open source advocate, to discuss the company’s processes around encouraging diversity.

Huesman noted that Intel has been working with software analytics software provider Bitergia on gender diversity research. But for Intel, she explained, this is just the tip of the iceberg: “We took a look at as a member of the community [and asked] how can we work, what part can we play in building inclusive diversity and inclusion across communities?”

Huesman also highlighted that while at Open Source Leadership Summit this March, Intel has also been working alongside the Linux Foundation on the CHAOSS Project, which are a set of tools designed to measure the health of communities with open source projects.
