20:00:46 <ekhugen_alt> Hi, who's here for the women of openstack mentoring meeting?
20:03:20 * ekhugen_alt hears crickets
20:03:39 <ekhugen_alt> diablo_rojo?
20:03:58 <ekhugen_alt> aimeeu?
20:04:36 <aimeeu> Hi Emily - I'm supposed to be on a conference call... and the host just arrived
20:05:18 <ekhugen_alt> hi NicoleH
20:05:27 <NicoleH> Hi Emily!
20:05:28 <ekhugen_alt> okay, thanks aimeeu
20:05:39 <ekhugen_alt> I think it might just be the two of us Nicole
20:05:40 <NicoleH> How are you? Have you recovered from the summit?!
20:05:58 <NicoleH> how are we collecting feedback?
20:06:23 <ekhugen_alt> i'm good, I think I'm still catching up from all the things that collected for me while I was away
20:06:24 <ekhugen_alt> you?
20:06:42 <NicoleH> me too!
20:06:59 <NicoleH> i headed to disneyland the week after, so i'm just getting caught back up!
20:06:59 <ekhugen_alt> I didn't get together an etherpad yet to send out for feedback
20:07:13 <ekhugen_alt> oh wow, nice long time away from the office though!
20:07:16 <ekhugen_alt> I hope you had fun!
20:07:26 <NicoleH> yes, we had a great time! thanks!
20:08:39 <ekhugen_alt> Hi MeganR
20:08:51 <MeganR> Hi!
20:08:57 <NicoleH> Hi Megan!
20:09:07 <MeganR> Hi Nicole!
20:09:09 <ekhugen_alt> how's this for a feedback etherpad
20:09:11 <ekhugen_alt> https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/BOS-speed-mentoring
20:09:16 <NicoleH> We missed you at the summit!
20:09:30 <ekhugen_alt> we so did, but it was great that Andrew came!
20:10:00 <MeganR> I missed you - would have loved to have been there, and yes really glad Andrew could be there.  His streak remains unbroken!
20:10:41 <NicoleH> Was great to see Andrew there!
20:11:19 <ekhugen_alt> I think we had a nice turnout for the speed mentoring lunch
20:11:41 <ekhugen_alt> it was a good ratio of mentors to mentees
20:11:46 <MeganR> that's great, so glad they were able to change it to a lunch session
20:11:57 <NicoleH> +1
20:12:25 <NicoleH> it seemed like very high quality conversations between the mentors & mentees
20:13:34 <ekhugen_alt> the 10 minute rounds seemed like the right cadence too, I think
20:14:09 <MeganR> fantastic, glad it was a success
20:14:17 <NicoleH> yep, i agree, the 10 mins time worked well!
20:14:39 <NicoleH> emily, is there a way to query the mentors & mentees who participated?
20:14:49 <ekhugen_alt> I think for me, I would've liked to have been in a room with AV equipment (to put up some slides about how it was going to go) and a microphone
20:15:06 <ekhugen_alt> mentors I have the list from the prep call, so I can send the etherpad out to them
20:15:10 <NicoleH> +1
20:15:21 <NicoleH> perfect!
20:15:22 <ekhugen_alt> mentees, I'm not so sure on, the rsvp list probably doesn't reflect who was actually in the room
20:15:37 <ekhugen_alt> I feel like we got a few drop ins
20:16:16 <NicoleH> true, i think you're right
20:18:24 <ekhugen_alt> Nicole, anything on your side that you want to capture for feedback, or anything you heard from participants
20:19:20 <NicoleH> hmmm, thinking ...
20:19:56 <NicoleH> perhaps we can go back to the input we received last time to see if we can measure how we did against that?
20:20:32 <NicoleH> do you have the link to that earlier etherpad? i can take a look to see if it jogs any questions we might want to ask.
20:20:33 <ekhugen_alt> I think our Barcelona feedback etherpad was pretty bare
20:20:44 <NicoleH> ah, ok
20:20:49 <NicoleH> maybe austin then?
20:21:01 <ekhugen_alt> https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/speed-mentoring-barcelona
20:26:06 <ekhugen_alt> finally found austin link https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/WOS_speedmentor_austin
20:27:42 <NicoleH> looking now!
20:28:02 <ekhugen_alt> I think we did pretty well comparatively, in Austin it was tied in with the long term mentoring program, which is where a lot of the feedback came from
20:28:08 <ekhugen_alt> decoupling that helped a lot
20:30:06 <NicoleH> yes, i'm seeing that too
20:30:54 <NicoleH> line 33 ... what do you think about placing the numbers on the tables in a slightly different order to facilitate easier movement between tables?
20:31:35 <ekhugen_alt> oh that's a good point, we should've put them in an order where everyone could've moved clockwise
20:31:39 <ekhugen_alt> just to make it easy
20:31:57 <NicoleH> yep ... and i'd forgotten about that until i saw line 33
20:32:26 <ekhugen_alt> still, I think the transitions went really smoothly this time
20:35:28 <NicoleH> yes, i think the transitions did go smoothly
20:37:51 <ekhugen_alt> so I'll send out the boston etherpad today to the mentors and we'll see if we get any additional feedback?
20:38:16 <NicoleH> that sounds great, emily!
20:38:41 <MeganR> great idea
20:38:53 <ekhugen_alt> should we talk at all about Sydney?  I think we might need to find some new speed mentoring showrunners for next summit
20:39:03 * ekhugen_alt probably won't get funding to go to Australia
20:39:37 <NicoleH> i think i'll run into the same issue, emily
20:39:44 <NicoleH> we'll see!
20:39:58 <MeganR> I am pretty certain that I won't be in Sydney
20:40:11 <ekhugen_alt> I just wondered if we should start advertising at the women of openstack meetings and see if someone wants to take it over
20:40:35 <ekhugen_alt> or if it should get taken off the schedule?
20:40:40 <MeganR> that's a good idea - let
20:40:50 <MeganR> 's see if someone can take over first
20:41:04 <NicoleH> +1
20:41:48 <ekhugen_alt> cool, I think the next one of those is in June, so we can try to remember to bring it up then
20:42:18 <NicoleH> ok. and in the interm, i'll inquire internally at intel.
20:42:38 <ekhugen_alt> yes, I'll ask around here too
20:42:54 <ekhugen_alt> any other topics?
20:43:27 <MeganR> I'm good
20:45:45 <NicoleH> good on my end!
20:45:52 <ekhugen_alt> cool, meet again in 2 weeks?
20:46:22 <MeganR> perfect - enjoy the long weekend!
20:46:34 <ekhugen_alt> thanks, you too!
