Initiatives and Volunteering

Payal Singh-2
Just came across this list and the wiki page and was delighted to see it! Wanted to know what is the plan (if there is any yet) to encourage more women to attend and participate in postgres related events as well as community activities? 

Please count me in as a volunteer in this endeavor. I feel there is a great need for more women in the community, especially in postgres conferences, as it can get a bit isolated sometimes for women that do attend such events and see the lack of other women in there.

Thanks,

I'll write an email about what we have to do and who want to do what... I'm sorry I'm so slow on that topic these days.

Cheers,
