People:Mozilla Gathering Plan
Mozilla Gathering Plan - Phase One
Stay tuned as we move to phase two with an integrated global calendar and animated recipe card for success!
The components to the Mozilla Gathering Plan
- Comprehensive Gathering Plan that lays out the objectives our global events strive to achieve and a recipe card for event success.
- Comprehensive calendar with integrated technologies allowing for search/toggling for an opt in style menu of options.
Overall Goals of Gathering Plan
- Connect current & like-minded Mozillians and embrace new contributors
- Clearly communicate our purpose for Events at Mozilla
- Provide roadmap for event cadence
- Help clarify budget and clear ownership to drive metrics and accountability for Mozilla events.
- Leverage the plan to aid programs utilizing events as part of a rewards & recognition initiative for current Mozillians.
- Provide central place for all Mozillians to reference opportunities and ways to join in. *thoughts: this was “to get involved” but I’ve changed language to feel more inclusive and less opportunistic.
Why We Do Events At Mozilla

- Unify global talent force by aligning strategic goals to work functions
- Develop skills & instill knowledge transfer amongst Mozillians

- Cross group collaboration: how do we get work done
