Hope you’re doing awesome.
I saw the topic Call for MS Forum Moderators and thought maybe this is the right time for me to serve the place better!
I would be more than happy to serve this forum as a category moderator of the category #invest-in-skills-and-leadership-development !
I’m an outreach wikimedia organizer and trainer, and one of my prime focuses is to find and invite new leadership from outside the movement. I’m a member of the Leadership Development Working Group and I’m also responsible for interacting on this forum on behalf of LDWG. I formed a new team in my own college and now trying to ensure sustainable leadership there so that the team doesn’t stop working if I’m not there! I’m extremely interested in all these leadership things and hungry to learn what’s happening in the movement regarding this topic.
As an outreach organizer, I can confidently say that the lack of a platform where people can get involved in the governance process of the movement and other things is one of the reasons of volunteer burnout. This forum has created an inclusive space for everyone to share their thoughts without fear; I, personally noticed this among my team members and other volunteers. A safe and comfortable space without complexities can ensure inclusion in the movement’s governance process, and this platform is doing exactly the same!
I agree to follow Universal Code of Conduct as a moderator in this forum.
I also agree to act in coordination with the other moderators. Together, we’ll make this place more inclusive and less scary for everyone!
I think serving as a moderator of this category would provide me with the opportunity to be involved in these topics more closely!
