#BePartoftheGood: An Agile Response to Crisis
In this month of Thanksgiving, we thought we would mention how agile is changing the world outside of business! Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria left a wake of catastrophic damage in 2017 and overwhelmed all regular forms of assistance. Individuals and grassroots movements stepped up to fill the gap. Largely unknown people helped other people, neighbors helped neighbors, and all of it used crowdsourcing with methods known as Scrum, Kanban or Scrumban, even when the individuals didn't understand what they were using. Listen to the story of how an agile coach became part of the response and started a movement to help bring comfort and joy back to over 150 families in the Keys when they needed it most. More importantly, learn how you can use the qualities of an agile mindset, values, principles and methods to do the same for any crisis that might come your way. Networking: 6:30 - 7:00 Presentation: 7 - 8 Wrap-Up/Questions: 8 - 8:30

If you are a female agile practitioner, this group is for you. That is, if you are a Scrum Master, Agile Project Manager, Agile Business analyst, Software Developer, Tester, Product Owner, Agile coach, Agile Trainer or any form of agile enthusiast or just interested in learning more about Agile, you are welcome.

If you are among the many men who support Women in Agile, you are welcome. Our organization values diversity of opinion and welcomes all perspectives as we evolve in Agile together.

This group is agile methodology agnostic and welcomes Agilists from technology as well as other disciplines.

South Florida Women in Agile is part of a larger grass roots effort to get more women involved in the Agile community through blogging, speaking at events, building a network with other women, and creating a mentorship program for women (www.womeninagile.com).

We meet on a monthly basis to discuss topics selected by the group and share our respective experiences as Agilistas. We welcome suggestions about meetup locations, speakers, discussion topics and events.
