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

  1. Comprehensive Gathering Plan that lays out the objectives our global events strive to achieve and a recipe card for event success.
  2. Comprehensive calendar with integrated technologies allowing for search/toggling for an opt in style menu of options.

Overall Goals of Gathering Plan

  1. Connect current & like-minded Mozillians and embrace new contributors
  2. Clearly communicate our purpose for Events at Mozilla
  3. Provide roadmap for event cadence
  4. Help clarify budget and clear ownership to drive metrics and accountability for Mozilla events.
  5. Leverage the plan to aid programs utilizing events as part of a rewards & recognition initiative for current Mozillians.
  6. 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

  1. Recognition
  2. Expand our brand & global reach
  3. Unify global talent force by aligning strategic goals to work functions
  4. Develop skills & instill knowledge transfer amongst Mozillians

      • Align on strategy & focus
      • Cross group collaboration: how do we get work done
      • Grow Mozilla
