The talk is going to be focussed around what defines a community, and figuring out what are the community's shared struggles. It’s also important to know what is the mission of your community and what members look to get out of it. Communication is key and we’ll also talk about how to future proof your community. Regarding diversity and inclusion, it’s important to know who might be excluded from accessing your community activities in their current form. We’ll also discuss about what are some of the negative scenarios which might happen while running activities for your community which will make them less inclusive to marginalised groups. Following up with designing for your community's needs, and last but not least, having a Code of Conduct. Attendees will learn about: 1. How to start a new community and make it inclusive from the beginning. 2. How to scale communities to under-representative groups 3. How to deal with conflicts and take care of your audience’s needs.
