Diversity Outreach Speaker Training Working Group Chat Agenda | July 24, 2019

New and curious team members welcome. This is what we do:
(Only now it’s all diversity, not just women.)


  1. Reports of what you’re working on, with colors
        – green: on plan. No help needed.
        – yellow: not on plan but I have a strategy to get there
        – red: not on plan, no plan to get there, I’m lost!
  2. The new Train the Trainers MeetupsMeetup Meetup groups are locally-organized groups that get together for face-to-face events on a regular basis (commonly once a month). Learn more about Meetups in our Meetup Organizer Handbook. life cycle that we are working towards.


Problems that we’re working on solving with this new life cycle:

  • Not many were showing up to trainings.
  • Not many ran the workshop after receiving training.
  • Not many filled out the follow-up questionnaire.
  • We have no way current of collecting stories to show the community the impact of the work and to help more meetups want to run it.

Goals we are striving towards:

  • 80+% of meetups show up to trainings.
  • 80+% of meetups run the workshop.
  • 100% give us their stats and at least one great story.

3. Our new 2-minute “What is this workshop” intro video! (Temporarily stored here: http://diversein.tech/wp-content/uploads/2019/07/CallOutToMeetups.mp4)

4. Other things I’m working on

5. Open discussion

See you tomorrow (July 24) at 5pm UTC / 1pm ET in the Make WordPress Community-Team Slack channel.
