Any feedback on how can we improve is very much appreciated!


A H-U-G-E thank you to @iviangita for the excellent work she did as the Round Manager for this past TEC Gitcoin Round. (And a thanks to @Tamara for making space in the busy Commons Stack scheule so that Ivy could take this work on.) The TEC was in a crunch with Enti moving on and us really wanting to do this round. I just don’t think we could have done it without Ivy stepping in.

Ivy not only did an excellent job in running the round itself (just look at the above stats - and check out that deeper report on the Gitcoin forum in the link above!), but she overhauled many of our processes to streamline them and set us up for smoother operations in all future rounds.

Here’s to Ivy and this big contribution to the TEC! :pray: :fire: :pray: :fire: :pray:


I’d also like to publicly thank @iviangita for the incredible work she did managing this round! Your dedication, care, initiative, and attention to detail have truly elevated the entire program and the TEC. As Gideon mentioned, this round wouldn’t have happened without you. These contributions have a lasting impact and will be felt for a long time.

It has been such a joy collaborating with you, Ivy. Thank you for everything! :pray: :raised_hands: :orange_heart:
