How can people in underrepresented groups leverage resources in the WordPress community to increase their confidence, exposure, and potential hiring value?
“Focus on the skills people bring, what projects they've done that have been really great.” — Jill Binder
In this episode of Post Status Excerpt, David talks with special guest Jill Binder about diversity and inclusion — how can people in underrepresented groups leverage resources in the WordPress community to increase their confidence, exposure, and potential hiring value? Learn how organizers can make their events feel more open and how they can encourage those in under-represented groups to participate. If we see a speaker who doesn't look like us at a conference and simply appreciate their contribution as a speaker as a normal feature of our conferences, that is an achievable win.
