Ada Initiative, a non-profit that promotes women in open tech, has announced it will suspend its partnership with Github. The code hosting and collaboration platform had formerly sponsored Ada conferences and provided a free private code repository to women learning to code. The wind-down of the partnership arises out of Github’s handling of gender-based harassment and intimidation earlier this week. From Ada’s website: “these events make it impossible for Ada Initiative to partner with Github at this time.”
