Shout outs!

TOPIC 1 - Coaching - @deimidis ( mozilla/participation-org#441)

  • Training new Reps mentors in a different way, changing the focus from bureaucracy to personal development focus.
  • We are having a guide. We are testing
  • This is the first round once we are done we are starting with a new one
  • We are also having coaching for the existing mentors
  • Next Steps
  • we are discussing with the council on who is going to be the new coachees
  • We will gather feedback from the current coachees


TOPIC 2 - Regional Coaches - @nukeador, @deimidis and @Mte90

  • Selection is finished
  • This is an experiment on improving the connection between local communities- Reps-Mozilla
  • We want the regional coaches to know the regional communities problems and concerns and raise them to the Reps Council and have a 2 way communication between the council and the local communities. Reps council will help on guidance about mozilla goals and were we are heading
  • Regional coaches are being onboarded right now and have a small reseach on where the regional communities status
  • Its a way for the Reps program to adapt to the needs of the local communities


  • What’s the difference between a coach and a mentor?
  • A coach is someone who guides, listen and unblocks, not necessarily present on day to day work or teaching concrete stuff (like how to code). Coaching is a more high level relationship.
  • How can we bring the coaches into Mozilla Open Mic? I think it’s a great opportunity to collaborate with the social team on leveraging the work out of the communities and through the coaches


TOPIC 3 - Rio Club Fest - @soapdog and @dricupello

  • Rio Web Fest was a day of technological exploration and also a celebration of one and a half year of work with LAN houses in Brazil.
  • We had around 65 people.
  • If you are interested on doing something similar please do ask Adriano and soapdog for help and feedback
