Proposal Summary

To hire a dedicated Communities Champion, running code-sprints and contributor workshops and translating our desktop app into additional languages.


Proposed Work

This proposal seeks to raise diversity at all stages of the user journey by hiring a dedicated member of staff, Community Development Champion, to develop these targeted initiatives such as providing software in the native languages of users. The team will develop a program of contributor workshops, including a combination of virtual workshops to maximize reach, and in-person code-sprints so that new contributors meet and chat with the longer-standing team members. Additionally, in order to understand whether these initiatives increased our community diversity, the team will survey users and contributors via social media and our forum.
