Get Involved

Wondering how you can help? Here are some thoughts to get our conversation started:

1. In WordPress: If you love this work and want to join the WordPress Diverse Speaker Training group, we are always looking for more volunteers!

  • Give the diverse speaker workshop to your local meetup
  • Train other meetups around the world to run it themselves (Train the Trainers)
  • Help our team with other things like marketing and admin
  • Be around to give opinions here and there to help guide us through the big and little decisions

(^ updated now to all diversity, not just women, and we meet on Slack the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays for up to an hour)
