I’m excited to share this post and our top findings from the Group Identities Survey (Find more information on the Group Identities Project for the Community Development Team here). The survey is still open for people to fill here
To dig deeper into some of the findings from the survey and gain more clarity, I will be holding Focus Discussion Groups on Telegram in 3 categories:
- Individuals who identify as Women, Non-binary/third gender or Transgender
- Individuals who are involved in a contribution area group (Localization, Support, Web Literacy, etc.)
- ‘Leaders’ of a current group (Those who have started groups or have specific leadership positions within the group). .
Next week we will be circulating a form for anyone who is interested in signing up for these discussions. The survey findings as well as discussion conversations will then be turned into a list of recommendations document that will be shared with the community.
Please find some of the Survey results below:
