The Diverse Speaker Training group (#WPDiversity) would like to facilitate more diverse voices sharing knowledge and stories in the virtual space.
We are going to hold a 3-part workshop, one hour each day, to help people with:
Dispelling some myths about speakers/speaking (Overcoming the thought, “But I’m not an expert in anything”)
Coming up with topics and choosing one (Answering the question, “I wouldn’t know what to talk about!”)
Writing a meetup description or WordCamp pitch
Online stage presence (new!)
These will all be held at 6-7 pm UTC / 2-3 pm ET:
Tuesday, April 14: Who am I to be speaking? & Finding a topic that people would love to hear (No prerequisite)
Wednesday, April 15: Creating a great pitch (Prerequisite: Please come with an idea for a talk. If you don’t have one, then please make sure you attend Tuesday!)
Thursday, April 16: Online stage presence (No prerequisite)
You are encouraged to attend all sessions, but you are also welcome to attend only the sessions you wish.
Please note! This training is intended to train speakers who are members of a marginalized or underrepresented group in terms of gender, race, class, sexuality, ability, age, etc.
If this is you, please sign up in the Registration form!
