Mozilla Open Leadership training series, an intensive training program by Mozilla Foundation to mentor leaders that are developing Open Source projects with high social impact, has announced its new batch of Open Leaders and their respective projects. We are thrilled to share that Subhashish Panigrahi has been selected as one of the Open Leaders who will be working closely with a mentor to bring new perspectives to OpenSpeaks.
Here is an excerpt from the Mozilla Open Leadership Training Series blog.
OpenSpeaks is a collaborative to build Open Educational Resources, Open Source Software, and Open Datasets and Methodology to train ‘Citizen Archivists’ for digitally-recording stories of their communities in their languages. The multimedia recordings are done following a set of procedures to ensure that the recordings cover diverse contemporary (of journalistic value) and linguistic content, so that the content can later be used to build digital-accessibility tools like text-to-speech
Subhashish is an educator, and long time Openness advocate. He currently works as the Chapter Development Manager at the Internet Society, and was leading Community Development for Asia at Mozilla, and played various community catalyst roles at Wikimedia Foundation and Centre for Internet Society. He founded OpenSpeaks to build digital documentation for native languages and cofounded a nonprofit O Foundation that stands for developmental work in Openness, Diversity and Inclusion, and STEM.
