Become a DSxHE Organiser as part of our 2023 refresh!

So, we're a few months into the year now, and 2023 is gearing up to be a big one over at DSxHE HQ.

Throughout the next few months, we'll be going through a process (referred to as the 'DSxHE Fun Run' behind the scenes). Essentially, this involves a few things.

Essentially, we're going to be reaching out to our community to check in. Through surveys and co-creation workshops, we'll be ironing out the creases and filling in the gaps to make sure that DSxHE is the best it can possibly be. The end result will be a 3-year plan to ensure maximum impact and maximum enthusiasm within our community, with a better understanding of how to make that community thrive. Below is a timeline with a rough idea of how things will be progressing over the next few months...

✅ Organiser meeting held to define DSxHE's core values

March 20th - 31st - Survey sent out to the DSxHE community

March 20th - Social media campaign to re-introduce DSxHE

April 18th - First community co-creation workshop

April 20th - Second community co-creation workshop

April 21st - May 5th - Consolidation period

May 6th - 20th - Operational considerations made (goals, targets, etc.)

May 21st - June 4th - Peer review process, inviting friends of DSxHE to review our drafted strategy

June 18th - Townhall presentation of the strategy and Q+A

With all that ahead of us, it's all hands on deck here, and truth be told - we'd be grateful for a few more hands!

If you've been waiting for an opportunity to jump feet first into the DSxHE community, here's your chance. We're looking for people to join our organising team to help us throughout the DSxHE fun run, and hopefully stick around to play a part in guiding our community in the future.

As a DSxHE organiser, your role will be to help co-organise aspects of this process, run a campaign, or assist in whatever ways you can to continue our exciting journey throughout 2023.

In becoming a DSxHE organiser you commit to:

  • Contribute on average 2-3 hours a week

  • Attend a bi-weekly organisers' meeting (currently held every other Tuesday)

  • Be active on the DSxHE Slack (our mode of communication)

  • Keep your notes and documentation organised, up-to-date and clear on Notion (where we organise our work) so we can work as asynchronously as possible

We hope all organisers have a lot of fun, get to work with a global group of quite frankly spectacular people, learn lots about data science/health equity and community management, and truly feel a sense of ownership, autonomy and space for creativity, to lead DSxHE onto great things.
