The Participation Team is excited to launch a new initiative today.
For the remainder of 2015 and early 2016, we will invest in a cohort of 150 participation leaders (volunteer Mozillians) who are committed to building participation at Mozilla in 2016. Any volunteer Mozillian can apply to be part of this cohort by applying to attend one or more of 3 global gatherings – MozFest (Nov 6-8, London, UK), the Mozilla All Hands (Dec 7-11, Orlando, USA), and the Leadership Summit (Jan 22-24, Singapore).
Joining this cohort of participation leaders will mean committing to an ongoing effort to build participation throughout 2016, including action plans, being part of community calls and some reporting. People in this cohort will get regular coaching and mentorship, and full sponsorship to one or more of the upcoming global gatherings.
Also, please share this with any Mozillian who you think needs to hear about this! Sample tweet:

Finally, thanks to all of the awesome feedback we got to make this initiative much stronger than the initial concept:
