RISC-V International has seen unprecedented growth as an organization and industry movement in its first 5 years. Joining RISC-V at this time in their life cycle has allowed me to design visibility and community programs to demonstrate widespread adoption, lead in the open hardware community, and ignite exponential growth through membership, events, and technical achievements. In this talk, I’ll discuss the programs, events, and communications we implemented to take the RISC-V community to the next level. I will cover: Content: Starting a content program and growing it for relevance Social: The use of social media to get the word out, what worked, and what didn’t work Visibility as a member benefit: Amplification of technical progress and industry adoption Engagement: The benefits of engaging with the community to drive growth goals Events: The change in our event strategy in 2020/2021 and what worked to keep the knowledge flowing Community programs: So many options - I’ll discuss where I have focused Diversity: The importance of a diversity and inclusivity plan
