RE: IDCG meeting agenda

Hi Léonie,

Is this meeting 2 PM UTC, meaning 1 hour earlier for those in countries that changed to winter time?

Subject: IDCG meeting agenda

⛔       This is an external email.


Day: Tuesday 17 November
Time: 2PM UTC.
Duration: 55 minutes.

Meeting information (Zoom, IRC etc.):

We will use IRC for taking meeting minutes and Zoom "raise hand" to manage the queue.


1. Personal pronouns in W3C profiles

It has been suggested that the option to add your personal pronouns to your W3C profile would be a positive change. Ralph and Wendy have asked IDCG for comment on the following points and questions:

* To support individuality, the personal pronouns field will be user editable (not a choice from a predetermined set of options).

* To encourage people to provide their personal pronouns, the personal pronouns section will always be displayed on a person's profile, even when no pronouns have been indicated.

* Are there known best practices that could be used to check what is entered into the personal pronouns field to avoid the content intentionally or unintentionally causing offence?

2. Next steps with the BLM statement

The little discussion this question provoked seems to suggest we should focus our efforts on practical activities rather than reworking the BLM statement.

The aim of this agenda item is for the IDCG to decide what it wants to focus on, so we can make progress with whatever it may be.

3. Actions

Updates and progress on any open actions.
