Gina Likins’ career path has taken her through several seemingly disparate fields: secondary school teaching; public relations; online strategy; university outreach; and, most recently, community affairs and K-12 STEM outreach, but there are two threads tying them together: the desire to find order in a chaotic universe and a passion for inspiring others. She is a vocal advocate of Red Hat, the open source way, and the importance of diversity in technology, and has presented at more than 20 conferences on behalf of Red Hat. She recently contributed chapters to two latest books in the Open Org series, The Open Organization Workbook ( https://opensource.com/open-organization/resources/workbook ) and The Open Organization for Educators (bit.ly/open-edu-book ).
Gina is a Raleigh native, which means that she has oft been called upon to explain the difference between “y’all” and “all of y’all” -- which she will do gladly -- and that she holds strong opinions about bar-b-que (Eastern NC is really the only option). She is an ENFJ who is compulsively crafty, a sometimes singer with a bluegrass jam band, and seeker of thrills via a wide variety of adrenaline-producing, non-sporting activities (like roller coastering and aerial silks).
