Organizing Diverse & Inclusive WordPress Events #WPDiversity
Do you run or attend WordPress events and notice only one type of person is attending? You’d love to see more diversity represented, but people are either not showing up — or they attend once and don’t come back. What can you do to be a good ally to foster, promote, and support diversity and an inclusive space?
Join us for a 2.5-hour interactive watch party online to learn how to create welcoming and diverse WordPress Meetups 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. and WordCamps for your WordPress community. This workshop is not just for organizers, but anyone who wants to champion this kind of environment at official WordPress events, now or in the future.
In this workshop, we will cover:
1. Why do we care about diversity in WordPress?
2. What does diversity look like in your part of the world?
3. How do we move towards that?
- Mindset shift: Shifting the way you think about diversity
- Community: How to attract and foster a diverse community
- Environment: Creating a welcoming environment, both in-person and online
- Speakers and Leaders: How to encourage more people from diverse backgrounds to step up to be speakers and leaders
- Allyship: How to be a better ally
This workshop is beneficial for all levels of Diversity and Inclusion knowledge, from complete beginners to experienced event organizers who are already incorporating good practises.
