The GNOME Outreach Program is an effort funded by the GNOME Foundation, with the help of other sponsors, to increase awareness of specific areas in the Free Software community and to improve the GNOME project and the Free Software stack in general.
Outreach Program for Women was reintroduced in 2010 and has since expanded to include other Free Software organizations!

There are plans for other similar programs. If you have any suggestion for a specific topic that would fit well such a program, please contact the GNOME Foundation.
