Recap of the Diverse Speaker Training group (#WPDiversity) on June 23, 2021

Attending: @jillbinder @onealtr @tantienhime @katiejrichards @ashiquzzaman @sparklingrobots


We talked about:

  1. How @onealtr’s workshop in May went
  2. @volkswagenchick‘s workshop coming up next week (info and signup)
  3. An interactive watch party from me in July or August
  4. And 5 threads for questions about on-boarding and developing volunteers for our upcoming, expanded programs:
  • If you were to come on new now, what would you like to have happen to feel welcome and feel ready to start contributing?
  • How do you expect to be recognized?
  • What do you need to gather knowledge?
  • What do you need to level up as a volunteer?
  • For our upcoming programs that are going to be new to everyone, what new questions and needs does that bring up in order to get started?


P.S. We would love to hear thoughts from the community on the volunteer questions — on this post or in the threads on SlackSlack Slack is a Collaborative Group Chat Platform The WordPress community has its own Slack Channel at
