Discussion points:

Continue work on GetInvolved pages and collaboration with community.ubuntu.com
 - http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/GetInvolved
 - http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/GIWPI
 - Host Open Week / Career Days type session about getting involved
 - Try to get them going again?
 - I, belkinsa, could work with pleia2 to get it going and look for peole for it - thanks! added
   to action item

Expand BestPractices to go beyond LoCo advice
 - http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/BestPractices
 - Improve mentorship
 - Smalls tasks

Target 11-18 year old women (vs university / graduates)
 - How?
 - http://www.womenintechnology.org/git
 - http://www.womenintechnology.org/witef
 - https://www.gradfly.co/
   - <cprofitt> just my comment about making it more than career
               add the ability for it to assist students getting in to college or university
               the gradfly site as an example
 - Engaging projects, fun
 - Ask Ubuntu Youth team
   - Check how active that team is?
   - And work with them as a outreach sort of thing
   - Phil Ballew could be a contact
 - Engage teachers directly
 - <AlanBell> http://codeclub.org.uk has good materials for young people
 - <cprofitt> https://www.gradfly.co/

Have a outreach project for women for the Ubuntu Community (UWOP)
 - http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/UWOP
 - Blueprint: https://blueprints.launchpad.net/ubuntu-women.org/+spec/uwoutreach
 - https://docs.google.com/document/d/13HbySyDWX5UheFWy6RyNpzasL7CaMhE9w9b_pGKA61M/edit
 - Provide tasks smaller than Gnome OPW that we can handle
   - Reach out to UW and beyond to look for mentors
 - Recognize that employment + skills + help in higher education is important for interns
   and a lot of new contributors, target that
   - Also stories about how it helped careers of current members (related to Career Days)
     as a separate page.
 - Show what we have done to the people who want to join to show what they can do with
   UW and Ubuntu Community
   - Should this be separate stories from http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/WhatPeopleAreDoing ?
     Yes but they can be tied to the page.

Host at least 3 CareerDays sessions
 - http://wiki.ubuntu-women.org/CareerDays
 - Not just women :)

Outreach programs for LoCo teams that engage young women (11-18) in technology
related projects
 - How is this different than women who are in college or graduates?
   - Having to deal with parents being comfortable with their childred attending events
 - https://www.gradfly.co/
 - <cprofitt> just my comment about making it more than career
   <cprofitt> add the ability for it to assist students getting in to college or university
   <cprofitt> the gradfly site as an example
 - Involve parents (may be some legal and technical limitations to enaging younger
   contributors online)

More development on WhatPeopleAreDoing
 - belkinsa to make more prominent on the website
 - Ask more people to write stories :)
 - /Interviews are good stories!
