PyLadies Global Council Election 2020

PyLadies Organizers have voted #50 to select the inaugural PyLadies Global Council through a blended process: public election and nominations. The proposed timeline #46 has the entire election happening in April-ish 2020, specifically with the desire to sync the PyLadies election with the Python Software Foundation Board of Directions Election (that date is soon to be set).

Scope

There are several questions to be discussed and settled below are a list related to each part of the election.

Election Details
The initial Council will have 9 seats, 5 will be selected through public election 4 through nomination. The members selected by nomination will hold a 2 year seat, whereas the members selected by election will hold a 1 year seat.

Public Election

  • Should voting will be open to any registered PyLadies member?
  • What happens if there are ties?
  • What tech should be used for voting?

Led by: @lorenanicole, [TODO: ADD MORE NAMES]

Nomination Selection
The nomination review will be conducted by the working Global interim group.

  • What should be the criteria for reviewing applicants?
  • What should the application entail?

Led by: @whykay, [TODO: ADD MORE NAMES]

Outreach Strategy
The Project Comms team will be assisting in developing the comms strategy. See: pyladies/project-communications#24.

Translation

What language(s) should we translate into?

What are being translated? Like nominees bios? Or nomination criteria?

@Mariatta can we move your comment to the relevant issues (e.g. #59 ) ? My hope is to use this as a master checklist for all the components and that way we can keep it lean here and not a giant wall of text. But happy to adjust as you see fit!

Sure, I've moved the questions to #59. Not sure where to ask question about "what are the things to be translated"..

@whykay I've added you there! I'm going to change you permissions on this repo to contributor since I think you're not in there heh. Once you've accepted can you open a tracker issue (here's an example #59) to help us get started? I'd say just dump any unit of work you think makes sense to be done for that thing. We can get a meeting or slack chat going once we have that done.

Thanks for adding me. I'll try, with Chinese New Year coming up and a bunch of workshops in the coming week or so, I might not get to it till next week the earliest. /puts on thinking hat

@whykay that sounds like an agreeable time line! I think having that opened before end of month is great since we need to start doing the work (e.g. writing the nomination form, deciding rubric for selection, etc) in Feb 2020.
