Report: Diverse Speaker Workshops May 2021

During the pandemic, the Diverse Speaker Training group (#WPDiversity) has been delivering our Diverse Speaker workshop to the global WordPress community online directly.

Report: May 2021

Workshop / “Learn” Watch Party Hybrid (Philippines / APAC)

Facilitator: @onealtr

In May, Oneal Rosero followed the 1.5 hour “Interactive, Transformational Watch Party” format that we did in February. He played the video on Learn, paused for group exercises out loud, and held discussions in the text chat.

We once again got a great response from attendees. They let us know that they liked the content and this format!

Increase in public speaking confidence after taking this workshop: 12.5%


“As a WordCampWordCamp WordCamps are casual, locally-organized conferences covering everything related to WordPress. They're one of the places where the WordPress community comes together to teach one another what they’ve learned throughout the year and share the joy. Learn more. organizer, it is important to have confidence in public speaking. Before I took this workshop, I was only certain that I can talk publicly but was not really had a clear list of the things that I can speak about. I would recommend this workshop for those who are trying to gain/gain back their confidence and would like to start speaking at WordPress events.”
