We are getting close to the meetup! I have been adding updates to the
related ticket in pagure, but I am not sure it had enough visibility.
Based on availability we gathered, *the meetup will be Sunday, March 21st,
1PM-7PM UTC*. I set up an event in HopIn (so we can grab metrics &
recordings easily!), *register here*:
I came up with a loose agenda for the meetup, see below:
1-1:30 Welcome & informal chat
1:30-2:30 Session: D&I Team Debrief: talk it out.
3-3:45 Session: D&I Team goals, focus, & future.
3:45-4:30 Session: Future of FWD.
5-6:30 Session: Storytelling Workshop
6:30-7 Wrap up
You will see I coordinated a Storytelling workshop event for us! *I will
forward the invitation for the Storytelling event to the list momentarily,
please accept the invitation (if you are able to attend)* so we can get an
idea of how many folks will be there. We will be charged for the folks who
actually show up, so if you RSVP and can't make it, that is ok! Also, if
you don't RSVP in advance, you can also still show up :)
Can't wait to see everyone!!
Fedora Community Action and Impact Coordinator

Hello, I wanted to just give my thanks and introduce myself. I'll start with copying my original introduction to the mailing list, and write a more formal introduction when I have a little bit more time. Forgive me if I alittle slow first thing, just found out about a sudden family death yesterday. Covid of course, makes this even more a of a thing than it already is.
"Greeting Fedora, group leaders, and community!
My name is Tegan-Jean Hillman, I also go by Mouse. I live in Mid-Michigan, which is part of the United States eastern timezone. I am a 35-year-old transgender women. I am currently a culinary student, but has also worked in group homes and as basic home care, specializing in nutrition and physical/mental developmental disabilities.
I have been using Linux since the end of my junior year of high school when a very well known operating system crashed on my computer right before my final exams. Furthermore, I have been a frequent distro-hopper during that time, with most of that time being in Debian based systems because of the laptop I was using. Though I always find myself coming back to Fedora every few years. The few recent editions though have really impressed me. I have also started to move deeper into interactions with a few other users and have really enjoyed the interaction of the community. It really is somewhere I would like to consider my home distro from here on out. This has only grown as I have read the welcome information, and have seen how you are trying to live up to the Four Foundations.
I have always pretty much just been a desktop user, with very few reasons to move onto the server side of things. I use Gnome 3 and KDE Plasma pretty much equally. Recently I have tried to learn a little coding, though I am not far past the hello world side of Python. This is also the first time I have volunteered to a project such as fedora. I think it would be best to start at something like 2-4 hours a week until I learn my way around things."
