Manage episode 351861254 series 2892891
Winstina Hughes is a long-term community member and organizer within WordPress. She joins Cory Miller to discuss Support Inclusion in Tech, an effort to increase representation of minority and underrepresented speakers at WordCamp by providing needed financial support. This offers everyone in the WordPress community the chance to share their expertise and to contribute resources, so everyone has the opportunity to engage.
- Creativity is our common bond.: WordPress is the playground where we all came to tinker and build for fun or business. It is the software magic where we discover what new things we can do each day, how to make ideas become reality, and how we might leverage what we learn to create a better world.
- Ripple effect of inclusion: When you provide the ability for a large group of people to participate, travel, and network, the impact extends beyond the WordPress community to create the bigger changes we want to see in the world. This is our community magic.
- Fifth Freedom in WordPress: We are all familiar with The Four Freedoms of WordPress. This is the 5th - full participation. Removing the financial barrier will bring us closer to the reality of being a truly inclusive community.
