It has been a challenging year for leadership in the GDI community. After much consideration, assessing the new Chapter Leader expectations, and reviewing the new Code of Conduct we have decided how we want to move forward as a chapter. This Townhall is an opportunity to talk about the issues that have surfaced within the organization both on a chapter level and within the GDI staff. We are here to have a candid conversation about our goals moving forward and to make sure that everyone in the community has the opportunity to talk about what they'd like to see us advocate for. Our chapter will not be closing, however, our leadership will be changing, and we will be actively involved in continuing to push our community forward and ensure that it is an open and accepting place for all to learn and grow in code.
Thanks to Autonomic for hosting us!
