GBTF: taking it forward

Dear All

Its been a while. Its time to take the RDA GBTF forward.

First of all, let me share with you all that Natalie Harrower stepped down as co-chair of the TF as she now has more professional responsibilities. I thank her for her support so far and solicit her continued engagement with the group.

Which brings us to the question "how do we move forward?". Just to refresh our memory we started with the following potential/suggested actions:

  • No more ‘manels’: requirement for diversity in Plenary guidelines.

Fwd: [CODATA-international] Why are women under-represented among the ranks of data scientists?

Hi all,
Women are still under-represented in science globally. Women are less likely to be consulted on the design of data policies and initiatives; under-represented among the ranks of data scientists; and often uncounted in official statistics. Why?

Hi

Dear Natalie
Hi. I cannot seem to get back to GBTF work. We could not get it off ground
so far.
Shall I do one more round for a skype call soliciting present members to
attend? At the least, we can plan some F2F time during P11 with some of
them to plan course of action ahead .
Let me know your thoughts
Best Regards
Devika
With best regards

Thanks for this - I have responded in the comments (phew, no-one closed them on the 15th :)
If this is introduced at the Berlin plenary, I supposed we would need to provide a briefing for all conference crew, as they listed as go-tos in the harassment section.
Excellent work, thank you.
Natalie
