Community Engineering is the intentional and skillful effort of creating environments which support the sharing of common attitudes, interests, and goals in order to grow a more diverse, inclusive, and safe technology community. So each week my guests and I will talk about the barriers and challenges we face as we work to make tech communities welcoming and safe for all.

The go-to podcast on why diversitiy is important in tech
Kim and her guests discuss very pragmatically why it’s critical to build inclusive spaces where teams of many different perspectives and backgrounds and flourish. Not because it’s the right thing to do (it is), but because it’s the viable thing to do. I hope this podcast reaches a wide audience of leaders in tech, make sure to subscribe and share it with others. Thanks Kim, keep up the great work!
Every tech leader needs to hear this podcast. Talking about diversity is great, but figuring out action items is the difficult part! Hoping this podcast dives into the actionable items more. THANK YOU!
A much needed podcast
Kim brings a refreshing take on community and code, here! Wonderful podcast that will help you build out your open source communities. Having someone focus on the difficult bits of community management - not just code reviews, but also documentation, praising contributors, and creating spaces for discussion - is incredibly important. This podcast's focus on that is much needed.
