We need your help: Volunteer for the Survey Team

This call for volunteers is closed! If you’re still interested, you may contact us directly, but expect a slower response.

The Ace Community Survey Team is currently looking for new volunteers, particularly people with programming or technical writing skills.

Our team designs and releases a survey every year, analyzes data, and produces reports. We seek to understand the diversity and well-being of ace communities, and educate activists and researchers with up to date information.

The major roles that we currently need volunteers for are:

  • Data analysis: Work with our team to create summaries and visualizations of survey data and find interesting trends, review the analysis of team members, and possibly improve tools for analysis. Work is done in Python with Jupyter notebooks and collaboration through GitHub and Discord (in English).
  • Writing reports: Work with our team and describe, interpret, and contextualize analyzed data and review work of other report writers. We currently publish one major report each year (in English). Comfort with basic ace concepts and terminology is required. If interested, also help with interpretation of write-in responses.

Further details will be explained upon joining!  We hold training sessions for new volunteers, and monthly meetings on chat.

Time commitments are flexible depending on your availability at any given part of the year, but we recommend setting aside at least 4-5 hours a month to do work on your own time, plus an additional hour for meetings.

If you’re interested, please fill out this form by the beginning of August 2022, and allow several weeks for a response. If you’d like more information, you may contact us at acecommunitysurvey@gmail.com
