WPWeekly Episode 359 – Diversity Speaker Training With Jill Binder
In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Jill Binder , Founder, and Chief Consultant and Trainer at Diverse Speakers In Tech . We discussed how and why the Diverse Speaker Training group was created, how the training encourages underrepresented people to speak at WordCamps, and how the recent 50% sponsorship funds from Automattic will be used.
We also learned that local communities that have participated in the training at the meetup level have seen a sharp increase in the number of diverse speaker applications submitted to WordCamps. Binder is hoping to be sponsored 100% so she can work on the project full-time. If you’re interested in sponsoring her work , please visit her contact page and get in touch.
