To help get the ball rolling on planning out Fedora Women Day next
month, I added a full description and a few other points for the wiki
page for FWD. I thought it would be helpful to have something to discuss
by the next time we meet as compared to starting from square one.
You can read the updated wiki page at the following link, but I will
also summarize my changes in this email for easy reading and discussion
in this thread.
* Updated event description
Fedora Women Day is a new weekend of celebration to help raise awareness
and thanks for the women contributors across the Fedora Project. Fedora
Women Day marks the anniversary of the Fedora Women team. The event is
headed by Fedora's Diversity Adviser (María "tatica" Leandro).
Over the course of the weekend, we'd like to help bring women
contributors across Fedora together with one another. This is a great
time to network with other women in Fedora, listen to stories from
others in the project, and recognize each other's achievements. This
event is primarily a virtual event, and there are plans to do a group
audio and/or video call with other women and groups across the world. If
you are a local contributor, you are encouraged to try organizing a
local meet-up if you are able to (there is no money budgeted for this
event presently, but this may change in future years - if you are trying
to organize an event within your region, contact your regional
Ambassadors for budgetary concerns).
* Marked María as the event owner for all FWD organization efforts
* Set a (tentative) deadline to confirm local meet-up participation by
2016-07-10 (maybe should be sooner?)
* Created a few ideas for an event checklist of things that need to
happen before FWD
* Ideas / Brainstorming: Clarifying who is allowed to participate in
this event (Is it open to women only or any contributor interested in
diversity & inclusion efforts in Fedora? Will that open the door to many
* Set a few (tentative) event planning deadlines
* 2016-06-19: Send out invites to any speakers / women interested in
sharing experiences to participate
* 2016-06-29: First draft of event announcement passed to editors of
either Fedora Magazine or Community Blog
* Clarified that if organizing a local meet-up and need a budget, create
an event via your regional Ambassadors
Any thoughts / feedback on these changes are welcome and appreciated!
