Thank you Katrina for detailed update! 
I really appreciate the initiative and will check if I can be useful as volunteer too. Actually I did learn A LOT from the PDF summary that you sent out before. I am currently addressing this topic in a different community and trying to learn from both cases.

Hello, Alina and SIKM Leaders community

Thank you for asking about the SIKM gender/diversity initiative! 

We had a good response to the survey about the draft SIKM Blueprint. Next steps are to compile the ideas and topic suggestions, and to kick off a few projects with the volunteers who raised their hands. More detail to follow, but I can write that the potential projects (and initial volunteer organizers) are:

1. Community managers (Ivan Butina and Aprill Allen)

2. Live Discussions/Live Peer Assists (Nancy Dixon) 
(Many topics were crowd-sourced in the Survey.)

3. Using Groups.io (Susan Ostreicher)
(Update/make searchable our SIKM profiles, find threads, create tags, do polls, etc.)

4. Revise and post the Blueprint with your input from the survey (Stan Garfield, Kate Pugh, Nancy Dixon, Susan Ostreicher)

I'm happy to say that over 50 volunteers raised their hands, with great topic ideas. These discussions/projects will not only expand our learning, but also push forward the knowledge management / knowledge integration discipline.  

Please email Nancy, Susan or me privately if you missed the survey and want to volunteer.  

This has taken longer due to the Corona Virus, and we apologize. Stay tuned for more information on the Blueprint and projects -- and thanks for your tremendous inputs!

Hello, SIKM Community
I hope you all had great a Thanksgiving in the US (and that the international community enjoyed not having to entertain a dozen people!)

I’m re-sending the summary and next steps that Nancy Dixon and I wrote from the gender and diversity discussion two weeks ago. Thank you, several of you, who have responded and volunteered. 

I’m sending my note again with the summary. Please would you let Nancy and me know if you would like to participate in a live, 1-hour Skype or Zoom with fellow SIKM’ers to evaluate the SIKM design/facilitation/operation ideas that people proposed? We’d like to have the meetings later in December at times suitable for different time zones.

Thanks
Kate

Reply-To: SIKM@groups.io

Hello, SIKM Community 

Thank you for your courageous and insightful comments on your experience of gender and difference in our SIKM community. Nancy Dixon and I read every line in every post, parsed them, coded them, tallied common themes, and summarized this for us all to consider.(Please see attached.) (nancydixon@..., Katrinabpugh@...)

We summarized this with the goal of inquiring, not placing judgment. We may have missed some nuances or thoughts, so, please feel free to send us updates (emails in the attached).

Next steps will be two live one-hour discussions each including approximately six people, and representing a balance of genders, regions, experience levels and job types. If you would like to be a part of these discussions, please let Kate Pugh and Nancy Dixon know (emails in the attached), and if there is space available, we will contact you.. 

We hope to conduct those discussions over the next month, and bring back concrete recommendations. We will also conduct a survey of the full community to assess those recommendations. 

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!
Kate and Nancy
