UnCommon Women sits at the intersection of Open, Social Change and Tech. To celebrate the work and opportunities for women and to push for equal representation. To support the women in the field of open, we need clear paths to advancement, mentorship opportunities and ensure individuals identifying as female have a visible presence in leadership. We will announce survey results of women in the movement on the panel. Pulling together women across levels of experience working OpenEd, this panel is convened to discuss experiences, challenges and successes, and to show the strength of women working in the open.

Public Lead, Creative Commons Canada
I've been working in The Open for 5 years and across two continents. I've been extremely fortunate to hold the role of CC Public Lead in South Africa and Canada. I am no longer trying to make CC-BRAAI-SA pun a thing but searching for a good Canada Open pun.
