Next Badger Orientation April 12

For anyone who is interested in participating in the next round of Badger Orientations, there is a meeting starting at 9:00 am US Central / Chicago time on Wednesday, April 12. (This orientation will take up the second half of the regular DEI Badger meeting). In this meeting we will go over the badging process and how to review applications. If you are interested in becoming a new badger and would like to learn more, you can fill out this form and someone will contact you.

Evolution Working Group Rolled into Common

In case you hadn’t been part of this discussion in the Weekly Community Call, metric development and discussions that had previously taken place in the Evolution Working Group will now happen in the Common Working Group, and this Working Group will cease to exist. Any metrics previously developed will remain in the wg-evolution repository, but this group will no longer hold meetings or develop any new metrics.

If you are interested in participating in “evolution” discussions, you are welcome to join the Common Working Group, which currently meets every other Thursday at 10:00 am US Central/Chicago time. The next meeting is on April 13.

Upcoming Meetings

All calls use our CHAOSS community Zoom link: All meetings are listed in the US Central Time (Chicago) timezone, currently on Daylight Savings Time. (Convert into your local time here). You can also subscribe to the CHAOSS Calendar, or join the #general channel on Slack for meeting reminders.
