From our organizers:
A first-of-its-kind initiative, the Solution Sprint is a one-day, crowdsourced event designed to drive resources, expertise, and attention to solving community-identified challenges. We looked to the tech and design fields for analogies in collective problem solving, and modeled the Sprint on a hackathon approach. Teams will be developed in advance, and each team will work on a pre-selected project.
Projects might include:
• an industry-wide code of conduct designed for and by our community.
• a set of novel, realistic approaches to sexual harassment training.
• an equity policy that outlines best practices in producing diverse and inclusive panels, conferences, and summits.
We are currently seeking applications for both Solution Sprint Projects and Sprint Team Members. Applications are open to individuals or organizations that wish to apply. For more information, please see the Apply tab. If you see an opportunity to evolve the culture, we want to hear from you!
The application deadline HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO AUGUST 31ST and selected projects will be announced on September 10th.
