Speaker at Grace Hopper Open Source Day

I co-presented a Learning Track (workshop series) at the Grace Hopper Open Source Day event organized by Anita Borg Institute. We covered how attendees can get started with using GitHub and contributing to Kubernetes. We had one contributor end up contributing major fixes to the Kubernetes project. Example - https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/pull/103723 (PR is closed, but her work was used as inspiration in https://github.com/kubernetes/kubernetes/pull/106448)
