Fedora DEI Team 2023 Q4: Appreciation Week and new members

The Fedora Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion (DEI) Team rounded out 2023 with a focus on celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Fedora Project and officially welcoming new team members. This post is a brief recap of the fourth quarter of 2023 (October to December) for the DEI Team. The end of the year is typically a slower time in Fedora due to holidays, but we had some major highlights in 2023 Q4 anyways:

  • Shifted our sprint planning from a monthly cadence to a quarterly cadence.
  • Revived Fedora Appreciation Week after five years, to celebrate our 20th anniversary.
  • Welcomed two new team members, Robert Wright and Emma Kidney.
  • Fedora Pride was established, and represented at some of our virtual events.

This post summarizes these highlights and also paints a picture of what we were looking forward to in 2024 Q1. Read on to get the full scoop!
