The first meetup happened on June, 28 in Berlin. We had 5 awesome speakers and around 40 people attending.
While on the one hand the current name of the meetup attracts people we intent the meetup to be for, on the other hand it feels like we may hijack the term “intersectionality” for an event that has a little different outcome and meaning. We will be working on finding a good name that is more along the lines of an “interdisciplinary meetup with a focus on intersectionality.”
One major action item for us is work on how we can make the event intentional. Defining who we want to reach with the meetup and then actually reaching out to these groups. We will figure out how we can curate the content of the meetup to be relevant for the people we intent to reach.
