Here’s a summary of our meeting from Friday 10th November,
The main topic was setting up a governance structure for the working group, choosing a more suitable communication channel, and initiating the first project.
Here are the key takeaways:
Using Discourse or Slack for community communication: We settled with creating a Discourse category for this WG so we can start discussions using the
Using Jupyter Notebook to curate a landscape of existing DEI resources and programs for easy referencing to OSS communities. We have starting curating a list of resources using g Etherpad OpenDev Etherpad
We discussed how to identify and define clear roles and guidelines for this WG.
Add in any DEI guides, resources, or programs, you are familiar with for the DEI Landscape Document here
Develop a document that outlines the role and WG guidelines.
Hey, I am sorry to have missed this, but it is very exciting to see this group picking back up! I am seeing some familiar names in the attendee list.
I skimmed through the notes and saw there was a lot of conversation about governance. I may have missed it, but I was not clear on the purpose, vision, or goals for the revival of this working group. Is it clear what the working group wants to accomplish in the long-term? Is the focus on curating a general list of resources? How does this compare to the work done at Open Source Diversity or CHAOSS?
I am trying to understand better what this group wants to accomplish and if I can help support with my time and energy from the things we are doing over in the Fedora DEI Team.
I am on a long stretch of time-off/vacation, so I missed the last one and I will also miss the next one. That said, I do want to keep following along here. I left some comments on the next agenda doc. I have the goals doc open too and will try to review it, but likely won’t get time until later in December.
I would be curious to get peoples’ thoughts on this recent article in the next meeting:
