Community Leader Gloria Ojukwu shares her love for creating communities others can grow in

Today we are spotlighting @Gloria Ojukwu's story as an online and Atlassian Community Events Leader! With a deep love for agile and community, Gloria utilizes her superpowers to make knowledge accessible to everyone. From starting HerTechTrail, a nonprofit that builds sustainable careers for African women in tech, to joining the Atlassian Community, Gloria shares her passion for creating spaces others can grow in.

As we spotlight Leaders in both Atlassian Community Leader programs, we hope you enjoy the journey each Leader has taken to find a community of likeminded people interested in growing their potential with Atlassian products and practices.

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

How did you hear about the Atlassian Community?

I wrote an article on what to do before launching a software product, @Bridget Sauer found it and invited me to be a Atlassian Author. A year into that program, I started researching the Community Leader program. I contacted @Darline and said I would like to extend my involvement. She introduced me to @Isha, and that’s how I became the Community Leader for the Port Harcourt ACE Chapter.

Why did you decide to be a Leader in the Online and ACE programs?

I started as an Online Community Leader, but because of my background in managing communities, I already had a flair for hosting events. I think it’s one of my superpowers! I love having people come together. Starting from small groups and watching them grow as their interests are being fed.

What have you enjoyed about being an Online/ACE Leader? How do you balance the two?

It gives me joy to see people grow with a common passion. This year has been tough, so I’ve focused more on ACEs and raising a team of volunteers who can carry some of the duties. Our ACE chapter also got a new co-Leader, Chibueyim Alex. It’s been so cool to see how we can chase the vision of the community

On balance, the online community is something I can do at any time and anywhere, so I leverage that flexibility. Sometimes when I go to bed, I tell myself “Okay I’m going to answer five questions.“ That’s a pattern of balance I’ve used so that I can give ACEs the time they require.

What influence has your involvement in either program had in your profession?

Who do you find attending your ACEs and what content resonates most with them?

Two groups of people come to our events. First, people in tech, aka techies, (Designers, Developers, Product/Project Managers) who want to learn how to use Atlassian tools. Second, startup leaders who are interested in work culture and want to network with product and practice implementors. Both groups want practical content. At out last event, we introduced them to the Atlassian University and in our next event, we will have workshops where they can get hands on with the tools. It’s all about what new things can we teach our community - What new features is Atlassian offering? How is Atlassian making existing features better?

What’s one tip you’d give a Leader who is in both programs?
