Issue 3 | December 30th, 2022


Happy almost 2023! Arielle here. We'll keep this issue on the shorter side since it's almost New Year's Eve and I know you've got places to be or relaxations to take part in.

Here are some goals I have for our Discord community in Q1 of 2023:

  • Weekly Discord 101 audio sessions where folks can ask questions and get involved

  • Monthly audio/video learning opportunities within Discord

  • Meaningful participation from at least 50% of Discord members each month (not sure how to define "meaningful" yet, but that's the vibe).

More soon on all of the above! I'm very excited to enter into the new year with these goals and with all of you.
