+ = Fedora Diversity Advisor =


+ Fedora is a big community that includes contributors and users from many

+ different countries, each with their own experiences and historical

+ backgrounds that contribute to a diverse mix of cultural, educational,

+ and behavioral norms. To continuously create and foster an inclusive

+ environment in the Fedora community, it’s important to respond to the

+ needs of existing contributors and users, and welcome new contributors

+ and users from diverse backgrounds.


+ The *Fedora Diversity Advisor* acts as a source of support and

+ information for all contributors and users, especially those from

+ underrepresented populations, so that issues of inclusion and equity can

+ be discussed and addressed with the planning of multiculturalism and

+ comfort. The Fedora Diversity Advisor will lead initiatives to assess

+ and promote equality and inclusion within the Fedora contributor and

+ user communities, and will develop project strategy on diversity issues.

+ The Diversity Advisor will also be the point of contact for Fedora’s

+ participation in third-party outreach programs and events.

+ *Fedora's Diversity Statement is available at link:https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Diversity[Diversity]*

+ The Diversity Advisor is selected by the

+ link:https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Diversity[Fedora Diversity team]

+ and approved by the Fedora Council.  Currently the Diversity Team has

+ decided to rotate the position with every release of Fedora.


Please either edit this or give me the data to make an edit for you to correct or delete the contact and meetings section.

Also, I know you want to make some edits. I strongly encourage you to remove the resources and goals sections and move them to the Diversity Team page. Then we could add a statement that additional resources are available on the Diversity Team page. This will make this document more durable. WDYT?

Metadata Update from @bex:
- Request assigned

@bex I agree with you on all the points plus I would like to add the information about the rotational duties information for this position as decided, if you think it will be good to add.

For the contact - IRC nick can be given as amsharma on #fedora-diversity
Meeting should be in team's pages as this is diversity team (contributor's meeting).
Sounds good?

@amsharma please review the updated push
