Hey folks, I wanted to share some news regarding my role as the DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) Advisor at the Fedora council.
As some of you might know, my responsibilities have expanded significantly in recent times, particularly with my work at UNICEF and my move to another country. While I’ve been honored to serve as the DEI Advisor, I’ve come to realize that I have too much on my plate to continue in this role effectively.
You may have heard the saying, “Don’t lick the cookie!” In other words, it’s time for me to step aside and allow someone with the capacity and passion to take the reins.
The process for selecting a new DEI advisor is through team nomination and agreement. With that in mind, I wish to nominate @jonatoni to take over as the DEI Advisor. Jona’s commitment to inclusivity and her dedication to our community make her the ideal candidate to carry forward the mission of DEI within Fedora community.
If you are, or know someone who might be, a great candidate for this role, please nominate in the comments (Be sure to have discussed this with the nominee). You can also reach out to @jflory7, @jonatoni , or me if you want to understand the responsibilities, commitment, process, or have any other queries.
I look forward to seeing the continued growth of our community’s DEI initiatives.
