As a result of the first three weeks of the Call for feedback three topics turned out to be the focus of the discussion. Additionally, a new idea has been introduced by a community member recently: Candidates resources. We would like to pursue these focus topics and the new idea appropriately, discussing them in depth and collecting new ideas and fresh approaches by running four panels in the next week:
- Skills for Board work
- Support for candidates
- Board – Global Council – Hubs
- Regional diversity
Every panel includes four members from the movement covering many regions, backgrounds and experiences, along with a trustee of the Board. Every panel will last 45 minutes, followed by a 45-minute open mic discussion, where everyone’s free to ask questions or to contribute to the further development of the panel’s topics.
We are confirming guests and we are updating the wiki pages accordingly. Expect 90-minute sessions with video recording: 45 minutes for a panel to dive deep into possible scenarios followed by 45 minutes to continue the conversation with open mic for all participants.
We would appreciate your presence and your contribution to the topic panels. You can share your questions and comments now on the panel Talk pages. Panel moderators are glad to make them part of the discussion. Of course, you are invited to write in any language. The facilitation team will take care of translations as possible before the panel sessions.
