About organization membership

You can become a member of an organization to collaborate with coworkers or open-source contributors across many repositories at once.

By default, your organization membership visibility is set to private. You can choose to publicize individual organization memberships on your profile. For more information, see "Publicizing or hiding organization membership."

As an organization member, you can create commits on behalf of an organization. For more information, see "Creating a commit on behalf of an organization."

You can leave an organization at any time. For more information, see "Removing yourself from an organization."
