=== Delivered: First half of grant period ===
 
First half:
 
Groups running intro & diversity events:
 
# SF Python started running Project Nights
# An introductory Python lecture in a new user group in Bhubaneswar, India, run by Tarashish Mishra. This led to the creation of [http://pybbs.in/ PyBBS]).
 
Groups with gender diversity improvements in speakers:
 
1.# SF Python
 
Goals were:
=== Delivered: second half ===
 
* At least 3 intro / diversity events get run after consultation with the fellow in each of the first half of the fellowship (2 of 3 achieved)
(Star indicates not yet happened, but seems very likely to happen.)
* At least 3 user groups improve their speaker diversity in the first half of the fellowship (1 of 3 achieved)
 
=== Second half of grant period ===
Groups running intro & diversity events:
 
(Caret (^) means the event either happened already, or is scheduled and progressing along toward success. High certainty.)
# 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.
 
(Star (*) indicates not yet happenedscheduled, but seems very likely to happen. Moderate certainty.)
Groups with gender diversity improvements in speakers:
 
(Question (?) indicates that it is planned, but not scheduled yet. Low certainty.)
# (*) 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).
 
(Plus (+) indicates that it is expected, but '''after''' the end of the grant period. This by itself does not affect certainty.)
 
=== Post-second-half ===

Groups with gender diversity improvements in speakers, due to my collaboration with them:
 
# (^) (+) PDX Python has booked Mele Sax-Barnett to speak in March [http://www.meetup.com/pdxpython/events/162097922/].
# (*) (+) I helped connect SF Python with more women speakers again. This will come to fruition on March 12 (but is not published yet).
# (*) (+) Connected Stacey Sern and Allison Kaptur with NYC Python for the PyCon warm-up talks in April (meetup page here: [http://www.meetup.com/nycpython/events/163115902/] but their names aren't mentioned yet).
# (^) (+) For the first time in its history (as I understand it), Python Barcelona has talk proposals from women. Their upcoming lightning talks will have more diverse speakers, at their upcoming "Learn Some Python" event on March 30. [http://www.meetup.com/python-185/events/161424252/].
 
Goals were:
 
* At least 3 intro / diversity events get run after consultation with the fellow (3 of 3 achieved, 6 if you count events after the end of the grant period, 7 if you count maybes)
That's the status right now, if I recall correctly. The second half has
* At least 5 user groups improve their speaker diversity in the second half of the fellowship (0 of 5 achieved, 4 if you count events after the end of grant period)
about three weeks left.
