A bit about my background, I studied anthropology in university and
my research at that time focused on studying grass roots activist community organization.
Much of my work involved learning about how different groups with often very different
goals would work together on common initiatives. I would love to be able to apply what I
learned about bringing communities together and creating more inclusive spaces to the
fedora D&I team.
Good collaboration skills are definitely a plus and are a great add to
the work we do in the team. A lot of teams it is figuring out ways to
support a very large, very decentralized community all around the world.
It is fun but challenging work!
Along with UX oriented qualitative data collection methods, I have a
lot of experience organizing events and social gatherings (I work as a professional
musician and event organizer) and I'm really interested in collaborating to create
engaging and creative approaches to build community.
Totally an aside, but perhaps you would be interested in checking out
Anyway, Thank you for reading my little blurb here. I'm looking
forward to getting to know everyone and collaborating on initiatives, Justin commented on
the Nest event coming up this week, is it still possible to be a part of that?
You should definitely join up! I sent you calendar invites to the
D&I-related sessions coming up at Nest on Saturday and Sunday. Let me
know if you didn't get them. :)
Hope to catch you at Nest!
