To carry out this, we are asking leaders of RSE groups to answer questions about their current group, and to write a brief description of the story of their groups, including what challenges they have had along the way.
We are looking for both a structured survey response, and a prose description of the problems encountered.
What is in it for you? The results of this survey will serve as a repository of knowledge and experience to help the RSE leaders community through organizational growth challenges and opportunities. Additionally, you have the opportunity on the basis of this to be paired with a mentor who can help you with your questions - the international RSE community will facilitate this. There will be a question at the end of the survey to let us know if you’re willing to be a mentor/mentee/peer support.
We would also like to publish some of these. Let us know in your response if you are willing for your document to be published pseudonymously, and you will be given final approval rights before anything goes public.
