Hello everyone!

Looking forward to discussing and critiquing some IDRC website work today __
I'm sending out some questions and material in case anyone likes to look at these things ahead of time.

I am hoping to split our hour together with two main chunks:

1. Open discussion around questions such as:
- Who are the people coming to our website?
- What do they come here to do?
- What sorts of problems do they encounter when they try to do these things? (May help to think back to any support requests you’ve received)
- Bonus: Any ideas on how to address these issues?

2. Critiquing a first draft site map
Link here, if you'd like to look in advance: https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1VsW0vB1PF-gQn8fAMmPKRpny3DbhPXLkjBxxycqzDoU/edit?usp=sharing
While this discussion should stay fairly open, if you're someone who likes to have a few questions to guide your feedback, you can consider these:

    - What should stay?
    - What’s missing?
    - What is a potential red flag?
    - What are areas for further exploration?
