Groups running intro & diversity events:
# Python Dominican Republic ran a Project night
# ChiPy (Chicago) is running a Project Night, Feb 27
# (*) A multi-week intro Python event Seattle is going to be organized by Mako; I've linked him to the PyLadies Seattle group and the Seattle Python Users group, and will work to foster a collaboration if I don't see one forthcoming in the next few days.
# (*) PyLadies NYC is working on a Linux Night (their idea!) and I'm helping them with scripts and general support.
Groups with gender diversity improvements in speakers:
# (*) PDX Python is working on recruiting newbie Python programmers for a newbies lightning talks series, which is expected to include women speakers (which have been infrequent there, despite the 15-20% women at meetings).
=== Post-second-half ===
Groups running intro & diversity events:
# (*) PyLadies Boston is excited about running a Django tutorial, though Jennifer there says it's likely to occur after PyCon
# (*) (?) Python Barcelona is likely to do lightning talks in March, which may include women speakers
That's the status right now, if I recall correctly. The second half has
about three weeks left.
