He has been providing support to new and experienced organisers especially . Kwon-Han as a director on the board will benefit the PSF with a more represented voice equivalent to current Python users around the world.

      I am nominating Kwon Han for a seat on the PSF board.

      Kwon Han has been instrumental and a major drive in increasing awareness and participation of the diverse Python community within the Korean community and APAC community with initiatives of the PSF.

      Kwon Han will be a much needed addition to the board, and he will undoubtedly give a balance and needed view on what the different communities within the APAC region will need and how to reach out to them.

      Please vote for Kwon Han and help him improve our diversity and inclusion efforts within the community.
