Francesca Marano

Panel Moderator "Diversity and Inclusion in Tech"

I support developers who build the open web, and help others use it.
I am a second-generation woman in tech and I have been tinkering with computers since the age of 8. I am an accomplished educator, community leader, mentor, author, and public speaker.
I lead the WordPress core team at Yoast, where I get to work full-time on open-source projects with some of the brightest minds in the industry.
I co-led the release of 5.3 and 5.4. Since 2020, I have been serving as the Core Team global representative. I focus on mentoring other women to get involved in open source. 
I am always up for tackling complex projects that need unraveling and a good dose of blue-sky thinking. I promote transparency as a good communication practice within any organization I work with.
Before devoting my time to building WordPress, I was a web designer, with a deep love for HTML.
