and doing coaching I do some training as well I probably have areas of specialty if you will or interest product ownership is an interest area of mine agile leadership
is an interest area of mine I just started I’ve written a few books but what I’m excited about now is I have a new project I’m writing a book on agile coaching so that’s a new area, and I’ve been whining for several years
I’m a 60-something white guy grandfather but who’s very passionate about it’s not just black lives matter several years ago George Floyd
I’ve been trying to create more diversity in my workshops that I give, and so I’m offering diversity discounts for women people of color it’s not just African American it’s anyone
the other thing that would that josh and I do is we just try to reach out to minority students before they get into college know sort of explain to them the advantages of going into technology in
agile and to do a modicum of training to be able to give back you, and I’ve talked about this before I think we have a responsibility you know agile’s been very good to us
