Red Hat brings CO.LAB to Boston to teach girls coding, collaboration, and the open source
Last fall, when Red Hat announced that we would be opening a new facility in Boston, we also made a commitment to become an active member of the Boston technology community. Last week we were in Boston to lead another initiative that we hope will highlight the broader impact of open source and collaboration. In collaboration with Boston University, Sociedad Latina, Boston After School & Beyond, and the City of Boston, Red Hat hosted 20–25 Latina-American and African-American girls (ages 11–14) from underserved areas of Boston in a three-day immersive experience, introducing them to coding, collaboration, and the open source way. Through this CO.LAB initiative, we hope these girls were shown the potential of collaborative innovation and, along the way, perhaps helped spark their interest in open source technology or coding.
