Groups running intro & diversity events:

# (+) A multi-week intro Python event in Seattle is going to be organized by Mako.
# (?+) (*) PyLadies SF is organizing an Intro to Django event on April 26. my role, as I understand it, was to help connect people. [http://www.meetup.com/PyLadiesSF/events/166595482/]
# (+) (?) PyLadies Boston is interested in running a Django-oriented newcomer's tutorial. Expected in May or so, after PyCon.
Groups with gender diversity improvements in speakers, due to my collaboration with them:
# (^) (+) PDX Python tentatively has booked a 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).

=== 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.
