"Our guiding belief is that every person’s story matters, and we celebrate the inclusion of all religions, races, genders, sexualities, and countries of origin. We help people find a safe space to be who they are —creators, storytellers, and world changers."
-- National Novel Writing Month
And we add: Drupallers. We are creators, story tellers, world changers via our expertise in Drupal. A stretch? Consider it.
Every person's story matters. We are not people via merit, or via skillset or via technological understandings. We are people in essence. We are diverse. We celebrate the "inclusion of all religions, races, genders, sexualities, and countries of origin". And ages. Let's not forget inclusivity of a range of age groups.
In your workplace today, in your Slack team, in your project collective, are all age groups represented, are all self-assigned genders included, are all religions, cultures, and ways of communicating allowed in the door? Is there a mystic in your group? Why not? Who determines this mix? Are we proud of it? What active processes are in place to positively discriminate towards the unpresent people? Are these good questions? Are we asking them today?
What needs to change in order for these kinds of questions to be asked at Every Sprint Review?
Who is going to resource this investment?
Who is in? Who is out?
Is that acceptable to you.
We each matter.
