Community News & Updates from Our Committees / Task Forces

African Carpentries Community Monthly Meetups
The African Carpentries Community monthly meetups have been running since 2017. Here we discuss topics that are of interest to our instructors in the African context, including available resources, opportunities, events, and more. Join our first session, on 25 February 2021 12:00 - 13:00 SAST/10:00-11:00 UTC. You can signup on our Etherpad.

Organising virtual community events with accessibility in mind
In this session, we will talk about accessibility with a focus on community events like the workshops you run. We will discuss the responsibility that we as event organisers have towards event attendees, as well as opportunities and challenges that we have faced or can expect to tackle as we prepare to host events, and the resources available to help us as we go along.
