Recap of the Diverse Speaker Training group (#WPDiversity) on March 24, 2021

Attending: @jillbinder @onealtr @tantienhime @katiejrichards @angelasjin


@katiejrichards is nearly done with the “Creating A Welcoming and Diverse Space” workshop transcript. Delivering the Spanish translations for “Diverse Speakers workshop” to #training is done, and if there is anything more she will take care of it.

We are inviting more people to run our workshop so that we can cover more days, times, and parts of the world:

  • @onealtr is going to run an Interactive, Transformational Watch party of our “Own your expertise and find a topic” workshop for the Philippines and surrounding areas in early May. He is doing the pre-work of reviewing the material, and will chat with the communities about the workshop and set a date with them.
  • @volkswagenchick is going to run it sometime after April.
  • @wpfangirl is going to run it sometime – maybe the summer.

Our workshop makes WordPress a more diverse, better, and stronger place. If you are interested in contributing to this and learning about running our workshop, please reach out to @jillbinder.

@onealtr is going to run our working group meeting on April 28th while I am away. @angelasjin will support him.
