Special meeting for Diverse Speaker Training group (#wpdiversity) on Wednesday, March 25

It is a difficult time, and as such, I’d like to have a different meeting with the group.

Due to the crisis, some group members are likely feeling tapped out and some are itching to do extra. Also, our working group may need to change how we do things during this time.

Agenda for Wednesday @ 5pm UTC:

  1. How are you doing? How are you feeling? Let’s talk, let’s vent.
  2. Our team may need to pivot. Let’s brainstorm how we could serve the community now given the changed landscape.

Just a reminder that attending does not mean committing to doing anything! Even more so at this time when I fully understand that emotions are running high and for many, bandwidth can be low. Team members, please come regardless if you can so I know where you’re at and so that we can support each other. You’re also welcome to not talk but just listen.

This special meeting will be by Zoom rather than the usual SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform https://slack.com/. The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at https://make.wordpress.org/chat/.. You can get the link from the reminder that @miriamgoldman will be sending out on the #community-team channel just before.

This meeting is intended for current members of the team only, but if you aren’t in our group yet, message @jillbinder on Slack to figure out together if it’s appropriate for you to attend this meeting or wait until our next one. We meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 5-6pm UTC.
