Work Out Loud: August 1-5—Come Share What You’re Working on This Week! ⚡

Hi all, happy Monday! :wave: I hope y’all are having a wonderful week so far.

This Week’s Featured Tweet:

We’re proud to be supporting underrepresented speakers at this year’s WordCamp US! Learn more about the WordCamp US program here (and shoutout to my colleague, @katie.richards, for leading this effort at Pantheon).


Now, let’s get right to it! For those of you who are new here: Work Out Loud is a weekly opportunity to share what we’re working on, who we’re meeting with, and what we’re doing in our free time. There are no rules here—share whatever you’d like!

Welcome New Members!
Welcome to our newest community members: @nandhini. We’re so excited to have you here! You’re cordially invited to participate in our Work Out Loud thread, this week and every week. :grinning: Let us know where in the world you are! :world_map:

This Week, I Am…
:zap: Continuing to prepare for our 2022 Lightning Awards, which includes holding kickoff calls with internal stakeholders and presenting my team’s proposed plan/strategy to our CMO on Thursday.

:rainbow_flag: Collaborating with my Pridetheon Impact ERG co-lead to plan for our monthly speaker series, which will start next month (which unfortunately is internal or else I’d invite y’all!).

What I am Most Excited About…
:luggage: It’s my cousin’s (who is also currently my roommate) last week in Virginia, so I’m looking forward to spending more time together and ticking some more things off my VA/DC bucket list before she heads off to CA!
