AGILE ALLLIANCE

Sharing the Stories of Black, Indigenous, and People of Color

Sharing Stories of Black, Indigenous, & People of Color (BIPOC)

The purpose of this initiative is to engage in conversations with Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) working in Agile environments to learn about their journeys and challenges. In a series of podcasts, we will explore the experiences of those who have encountered roadblocks due to the color of their skin or gender that have hindered their abilities to flourish in their careers.

The Manifesto for Agile Software Development is based on fostering respect for individuals over processes and tools. Through hearing from people whose lives have been affected by systemic inequities, we hope to identify opportunities to make changes in the Agile space to allow everyone to contribute and inspire action.

Primary Activities

Sharing BIPOC Stories will begin by interviewing one person each month to produce a 22-minute audio/video podcast. Many of these interviews will be with BIPOC specifically to explore and unpack experiences related to racism and sexism experienced while working within Agile spaces. Interviewees will span the spectrum from those who are experts in their fields to those who may be just starting out. We will seek out people around the world who have unique contributions to make to our understanding of the challenges of working in the Agile community as a person of color.

We will also interview non-BIPOC leaders in the Agile community who are focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion work.
