    Bridget Willard: Community: Observe, Include, Accept

    WordPress Meetup Seattle 2018Speaker: Bridget Willard

    November 18, 2019 — In any industry, you have peers. In WordPress, you have community. So what does community mean? Why is it important to be part of a community? How do you become part of the community when you’re new? And how can we have mentorship from the seasoned community members?

    In this talk, I’ll discuss how we can include others. How new people can observe. How active members can include. And how we can have a truly diverse and and accepting culture — not just an inclusive label.

    November 14, 2019 — Do you run a WordPress event, but noticed only one type of person is attending? You’d love to have more diversity in your group, but folks are either not showing up – or they attend once and don’t come back. What can you do to foster, promote, and support diversity and an inclusive space? In this workshop, we’ll cover 5 topics: Shifting the way you think about diversity; how to attract and foster a diverse community; creating a welcoming environment, both in person and online; how to encourage more people from diverse backgrounds to step up to be speakers and leaders; and how to be a better ally. You will walk away with an action list to start making changes right away. This is not just for organizers, but anyone who wants to champion this kind of environment, now or in the future! Bring an electronic device or computer: We will be working with a workbook PDF and there will be an opportunity to anonymously submit those questions you’ve always wanted to know but been afraid to ask.

    Martin Wolfert: Besser gemeinsam als einsam. Besser zusammen als gegeneinander.

    WordCamp Stuttgart 2019Speaker: Martin Wolfert

    November 10, 2019 — Die WordPress-Community lebt es mit Erfolg vor: Menschen aus allen Herren Länder bilden eine Gemeinschaft aus der heraus, abseits von Herkunft, Religion, Hautfarbe und sexueller Orientierung ein großartiges Produkt entstanden ist, welches die meisten Webseiten weltweit antreibt.

    Im gesellschaftspolitischen Alltag ist der Zusammenhalt und das Miteinander von Menschen unterschiedlicher Herkunft, Religion, Hautfarbe und sexueller Orientierung nicht immer einfach und oftmals von gegenseitigem Unverständnis und Resentiments geprägt.

    Mit meinem auf WordPress basierenden Projekt „Ich bin Deutsch! Ein Projekt gegen Rassismus und Fremdenfeindlichkeit“ (https://ich-bin-deutsch.land) greife ich diese gesellschaftspolitische Problematik auf: Ich interviewe und fotografiere seit 2017 , mehr oder auch weniger bekannte, Menschen in Bezug auf erlebten Alltagsrassismus und erlebte Alltagsdiskriminierung und stelle die resultierenden Interviews im Internet bereit.

    Das Projekt soll ein positives Beispiel für bürgerschaftlichen Engagement sein und für mehr Verständnis und eine in alle Richtungen offene Kommunikation werben. Die vor uns liegenden komplexen Probleme können wir nur gemeinsam, miteinander und nicht gegeneinander, lösen.
    In meinem Vortrag möchte ich nicht nur vorstellen warum ich mich mit Verve für dieses Projekt engagiere, sondern auch was so ein Projekt im Leben von allen Beteiligten geändert hat.

    October 31, 2019 — WordPress is set apart by its vibrant, passionate community of enthusiasts and stakeholders. As WordPress continues to grow, the community will continue to grow with it. There will be things we might have to sacrifice to build an even larger tent, and things we will allow to constrict our growth — in order to preserve our culture. Andrea Middleton outlines a few of the choices already made, and some choices we’ll need to get ready to make in coming years.
