  Herb Waye Ombuds: (07:58) Hello everyone

  Lito Ibarra: (07:59) Good morning / day all

  Pär Brumark (GAC Niue): (08:01) Hi all!

  Dalila RAHMOUNI: (08:03) Hello!

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:05) thursday

  Finn Petersen, GAC - DK: (08:06) in my calender i have :Diversity Subgroup Meeting #28 | 13:00 UTC | Friday, 28 July 2017

  Rafik: (08:07)

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:07) @Finn - correct apologies got my groups mixed up

  Rafik: (08:07)

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:13) hand

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:15) ok just say when

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:16) hello apologies for the delay

  Finn Petersen, GAC - DK: (08:20) I put this comment in the google docConcerning Rec 5 I suggest to delete the following: “The CEO should determine the most cost-effective means of providing such resources, whether that be the establishment of an “Office of Diversity” or by integrating the role into an existing part of the organization.” First of all I would expect that the CEO always finds the most cost-effective solution – no need to tell him that.  Secondly. I do not find it appropriate to indicate how this could be organized. The recommendation should only contain our requirements.It is on page 3!

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:22) Yes, I agree with rephrasing it

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:22) ok

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:22) hand

  Dalila RAHMOUNI: (08:23) I agree to with the new wording

  Finn Petersen, GAC - DK: (08:24) Bernie@  Importent point

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:24) Yes working to get that approved

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:31) perhaps also address short-term strategies which need to be developed, such as educational initatives

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:32) yup capacity building metrics perhaps

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:32) It seems the report version shared in AC is not updated! not sure but Rec. 6 is not there

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:32) it's ok I'm reading the updated one now from the link

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:32) Time Check - 28 minutes left in call

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:33) Yes AC has the wrong version?

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:33) Report w/ Rec 6 is here

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:33) Same comment

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:34) examine the appropriateness

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:34) means censoring

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:34) yes reviewing is better

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:39) ensure diversity requirements in leadership roles

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:40) Regarding Rec.8, I agree with u @Rafik that it should be like (There should be a mechanism for ICANN community to review the diversity requirements in a predefined process) I suggest yes to make for the whole requirements

  Marie Noemie Marques: (08:40) Yes this version is supportive  :)

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:40) not just for the leadership roles

  Dalila RAHMOUNI: (08:41) I agree with Amal, it is for the community as a whole

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:42) yes that would be good

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:42) diversity has to be in all areas

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:42) and levels

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:43) good that is an agreement by me

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:44) yes sounds interesting reporting on specific elements

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:45) yes there is

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:45) maybe a report on metrics on each of the dimention of diversity elements

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:46) yes, would be good to see that report

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:48)

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:49) 10 minutes left in call

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:49) Does Rec.9 is similar to Rec.2 but in the stage of review?

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:50) feels like it Amal

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:54) it would be sort of opening up for initiatives for emergency response

  Bernard Turcotte - ICANN: (08:54) emergency?

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:55) yes, identify initiatives which are priority to do

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:55) Thanks Renata! clear now

  Amal Al-Saqqaf: (08:55) and feels important recommendation

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:55) for instance, if an so/ac has never had a woman in leadership, or a young participant, the idea they should do something about it - an educational campaign et

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:55) *etc

  Renata Aquino Ribeiro: (08:56) yes can improve the wording
