Following up on our previous meeting discussions, we agreed to retire this mailing list and migrate our discussions to the #dei tag on Fedora Discussion. The mailing list will be retired after Monday, 4 April 2022. You can find our new home below:
Both folks old and new, please leave an introduction on Fedora Discussion so we can get to know you better! This will also help us get a better understanding of who is around the DEI side of things currently.
For any clarifications about retiring the mailing list, please reply to this thread. Otherwise, this list will be moderated and archived on or after Monday, 4 April 2022.

We are excited to invite you all to our first ever Fedora Mentor
Summit. We have talks, panel discussions, fun sessions and a lot more
focused on the topic "Mentorship"! I feel this would be a great place
for DEI team members to hang out.
In our last meeting, the team agreed to run a fun session during one
of the breaks (see April 01 - 08:30 PM event in schedule ). It
would be great to see a bunch of us in the game, and also for the rest
of the event.
Please use  to register for the event, and use the same link to
join on the day!

On Ask Fedora and Fedora Discussion, we have a profile field for pronouns.
It is an open text string where people can provide what they want.
I have noticed that many people have, somewhat confusingly, given their
first name or username here. Others have given what I suppose they think are
clever responses, which are generally (as my kids say) more cringe than
I am thinking that it may be best to have a limited-option dropdown, with
* she / her / hers
* he/ him / his
* they / them / theirs
* other (see profile)
... with the last option for folks who sincerely use neopronouns, or if
someone _really_ wants to use their profile space to go on about their
personal beliefs on the topic for some reason.
Your advice appreciated.
