3. Items for discussion
- NetThing sponsorship
NetThing have responded to our queries about sponsorship opportunities we were suggesting:
“The main areas of investment for our D&I funding are:
- Paying speakers from under-represented groups to participate on panels
- Paying for childcare costs for attendees
- Live captioning
- Auslan interpreters
Happy for Linux AU to support a specific item (e.g. live captioning) or to provide general D&I funding for any of the items listed above.”
Joel, Jonathan and Neil had a brief discussion around this. Jonathan ranked the items as childcare, panels, live captioning then Auslan interpreters. Neil ranked them as live captioning, childcare, panels then Auslan interpreters. Joel noted that he is unsure how the childcare and Auslan interpreters will work for the online conference, so it would be good to get some more details about this from NetThing.
ACTION: Joel to send information to the Council list for further discussion. Joel will also get more information in parallel from NetThing.
- LUV committee
It is noted that the LA Council needs to get in contact with LUV and help them to get a committee in place. In general we want to be hands off with their election process, but we will help them to get going again if possible.
ACTION: Joel to email the Council list as needed to facilitate this process.
