diversity-index - A curated Diversity-Index of grants, scholarships and FA that encourages diversity in STEM fields aimed at half the world's population, Women!


Women are half the world's population and despite the uproar over the lack of diversity in the Computer Science field, they hardly get any financial support for higher studies or opportunities to attend conferences. There are attempts to bridge this gap with grants in highly developed nations, especially in North America, Europe and other first-world countries. There are hardly any avenues for helping women from low- and middle-income countries living in the Least Developed Countries (LDCs) as defined by the United Nations (UN). This repo is an attempt to measure the international diversity index when we talk of diversity and women - words that should encompass women from all over the world, but a disparity of unequal proportions is created when diversity grants and financial aid opportunities are restricted to women who are citizens of the first-world developed countries that have a higher earning parity based on their gross national income (GNI). Altruism to women who already enjoy facilities and privileges that women living in a third world country dont have access to, nor dream of, creates a dichotomy of unequals and this invisible inequality is deliberately ignored and never quantified by women-in-tech groups and the situation is worse in FOSS.
