20:01:03 <ekhugen_alt> Hi who's here for the mentoring team meeting?
20:03:17 <diablo_rojo> Hello :)
20:03:37 <diablo_rojo> amrith, around?
20:03:41 <ekhugen_alt> Hi Kendall
20:03:44 <diablo_rojo> ekhugen_alt, what's on the agenda today?
20:04:00 <ekhugen_alt> I think just going back to the new round of long term mentoring
20:04:31 <ekhugen_alt> sorry I got stuck trying to help someone with gerrithub problems and it kind of ate up my afternoon
20:04:36 <ekhugen_alt> Hi Nicole
20:04:51 <NicoleH> Hi Emily!
20:05:09 <diablo_rojo> Got the link to the form handy?
20:05:33 <ekhugen_alt> this one? https://openstackfoundation.formstack.com/forms/mentoring_pike_queens
20:07:36 <diablo_rojo> Yep that's the one :)
20:07:46 <NicoleH> Looking at it now.
20:08:02 <ekhugen_alt> we've cut it down quite a bit, anything else people want to change before we declare it ready?
20:08:12 <diablo_rojo> I think taking all those questions out is really good.
20:08:25 <diablo_rojo> I think its good how it is
20:09:05 <ekhugen_alt> +1 diablo_rojo, nice job!
20:09:34 <NicoleH> Wondering if we should include Long Term Mentoring in this statement at the top of the form: Sign up to be part of the OpenStack Mentoring Programs, including Speed Mentoring and Upstream University.
20:09:59 <NicoleH> So: Sign up to be part of the OpenStack Mentoring Programs, including Speed Mentoring, Long Term Mentoring and Upstream University.
20:10:22 <ekhugen_alt> I think that makes sense
20:11:04 <amrith> diablo_rojo yes, multi-tasking
20:11:16 <diablo_rojo> amrith, me too
20:12:24 <ekhugen_alt> diablo_rojo is it pretty easy to change that line at the top of the form?
20:13:47 <NicoleH> diablo_rojo, how do-able is it to swap order of a couple of the questions? if it's more difficult, no worries.
20:13:49 <diablo_rojo> Yeah definitely
20:13:55 <diablo_rojo> Also very easy
20:13:56 <ekhugen_alt> thanks!
20:14:12 <NicoleH> ok, am looking at the order ...
20:15:35 <NicoleH> Looking at the 4th question & 7th question, these appear very similar.
20:15:57 <NicoleH> They both ask about current role.
20:16:58 <ekhugen_alt> Job Title/Current Role* and What is your current role?*
20:17:09 <NicoleH> yep
20:17:13 <diablo_rojo> Good point
20:17:18 <diablo_rojo> I will take out current role?
20:17:26 <ekhugen_alt> +1 diablo_rojo
20:17:42 <NicoleH> +1
20:18:25 <NicoleH> Should the question about 'previous roles' then fall underneath it?
20:19:12 <ekhugen_alt> if we do that, can we move the mentor/mentee question up to under Company?
20:19:41 <ekhugen_alt> I'm just thinking of the spreadsheet and it's useful to have mentor/mentee always near the left hand side
20:21:10 <diablo_rojo> Here let me make some of these changes real quick and we can look at it. Two min and I will tell you when to refresh.
20:21:23 <ekhugen_alt> thank you!
20:21:49 <NicoleH> cool!
20:25:03 <diablo_rojo> Okay refresh
20:25:10 <NicoleH> It feels like we should drop the question about goals down below the question posed to mentees about their areas of interest.
20:25:33 <NicoleH> That way, all of the questions posed to mentors are together.
20:25:46 <NicoleH> Otherwise, the form looks great!
20:26:24 <diablo_rojo> Better?
20:26:25 <ekhugen_alt> I like that change
20:27:36 <diablo_rojo> Once we are settled on what this looks like. I will make a google sheet, link it and then we are ready to send out the email I think
20:27:58 <NicoleH> Awesome!
20:28:34 <diablo_rojo> So we are good to go?
20:28:34 <NicoleH> Looks great on my end!
20:28:45 <diablo_rojo> Perfect :) Thanks for the suggestions NicoleH :)
20:28:47 <ekhugen_alt> I think so
20:29:13 <NicoleH> absolutely! :)
20:29:15 <diablo_rojo> ekhugen_alt, I will ping you when I am done with the google sheet. Will do it today and then you are free to send the email to kick things off whenever you want.
20:29:26 <diablo_rojo> I can also get annabelleB to promote :)
20:29:34 <ekhugen_alt> okay, and just fyi this is the email I was going to send out
20:29:36 <ekhugen_alt> Hello All!
20:29:36 <ekhugen_alt> We are excited to kick off the next round of mentoring sponsored by the
20:29:36 <ekhugen_alt> Women of OpenStack! Anyone can sign up who is interested in mentoring or in
20:29:36 <ekhugen_alt> need of a mentor!
20:29:37 <ekhugen_alt> Mentors! We can set you up as a technical mentor based on your areas of
20:29:38 <ekhugen_alt> expertise within the community or we can match you with a mentee looking
20:29:41 <ekhugen_alt> for more career advice.
20:29:43 <ekhugen_alt> Mentees! We have a variety of Stackers interested in giving you both
20:29:45 <ekhugen_alt> technical and career advice! We have mentors from a wide range of projects
20:29:47 <ekhugen_alt> and working groups willing to help you get involved in different aspects of
20:29:49 <ekhugen_alt> the community.
20:29:51 <ekhugen_alt> We would like to make as many matches before the Denver PTG as we can
20:29:53 <ekhugen_alt> so you can meet with your mentee/mentor there if you are both attending.
20:29:55 <ekhugen_alt> If you have been involved with previous rounds of mentoring, we would love
20:29:57 <ekhugen_alt> to have you back!  Please fill out the form below, since we are starting
20:29:59 <ekhugen_alt> from a clean slate on mentors and mentees this time.
20:30:01 <ekhugen_alt> Sign-up to get involved here:
20:30:03 <ekhugen_alt> https://openstackfoundation.formstack.com/forms/mentoring_pike_queens
20:30:15 <diablo_rojo> Looks good to me :)
20:30:34 <annabelleB> yup! can share on social!
20:30:53 <ekhugen_alt> thanks diablo_rojo and annabelleB!
20:31:12 <NicoleH> Yay, a big thank you!
20:31:25 <diablo_rojo> annabelleB, maybe tweet something tomorrow or thursday?
20:31:56 <annabelleB> can do!
20:32:25 <ekhugen_alt> awesome!
20:33:11 <ekhugen_alt> so anything else on the long term mentoring then?
20:34:08 <NicoleH> not that i can think of.
20:34:42 <ekhugen_alt> okay, amrith anything to talk about with the Speed Mentoring  session for Sydney?
20:34:48 <diablo_rojo> Did we want to start talking about Speed Mentoring for SYD? Or waiting to hear if we have a sponsor before we plan things?
20:35:26 <ekhugen_alt> I guess that's probably the only question there, if we've had any luck on sponsorship
20:37:50 <diablo_rojo> Nothing so far.
20:38:04 <ekhugen_alt> okay, any other topics?
20:38:32 <NicoleH> none from me
20:39:10 <diablo_rojo> None from me.
20:39:13 <ekhugen_alt> does anyone mind if we cancel the next two weeks?  I'm out of office for a bit
20:39:21 <ekhugen_alt> and usually August is a big vacation time
20:39:46 <NicoleH> sounds good on my end
20:40:05 <diablo_rojo> I think that's fine. We can email around if there are questions in the interim.
20:40:18 <ekhugen_alt> okay cool
20:40:20 <diablo_rojo> Start making matches when we come back together in two weeks?
20:40:40 <ekhugen_alt> yep, that sounds like a good plan, although I think it will be 3 weeks
20:40:52 <NicoleH> +1 diablo_rojo. sounds like a great next step!
20:41:00 <diablo_rojo> ekhugen_alt, that's what I meant :)
20:42:10 <ekhugen_alt> awesome, thanks everyone!  Have a good afternoon!
