Announcement: Ashley Williams joining the Core Team and taking lead of the Community Team
Ashley has already had a large impact on the Community Team. She has extensive experience in community education and organization. She joined the community team in July 2017, after spending the previous year reenergizing the RustBridge program; creating a new website and curriculum and running multiple events in multiple countries over the course of 12 months. Much of her skill in this area comes from her experience founding and leading the Nodetogether program for the Node.js community in 2016.
As Community Team lead, Ashley hopes to grow the Community Team leadership structure and scope through better project management and tracking. As part of this, she intends to improve communication, transparency, and discovery both within the team and Rust leadership, as well as with the broader Rust community.
I’m thrilled to have her take over, and can’t wait to help her achieve her vision when I’m back from my leave.
