Hi Cindy,
I'd like to publish the badges page--it's becoming important for several initiatives.

What if we put the Stackable Badges on the Initiatives page under the "Machine Learning Bias" section? That would keep the main navigation tidy. 
My second thought would be to  make space in the navigation bar by removing the News page from top level headings (except then I'd have to figure out where to put it). We can even just mute that page until I figure out what to do with it. I think we can share news elsewhere like in LinkedIn or other social media channels.  Also, I'm OK with getting more  room if needed  by shortening "Inclusion Challenges" to Challenges.

Would any combination of these options work well?

Hi Vera & David,

Uttara is adding the Bagets page on the WordPress site. Once she publishes it, the page and the menu item will be available via the top navigation bar on the production site.

However, there are a couple of issues that need to be addressed programmatically, which won’t be available on the production site until the next release:

1. The corresponding home tile pointing to the Bagets page; 2. Now the top navigation bar has too many words to fit into the iPad Pro portrait mode. The website styling needs to be adjusted to fix the issue.

In terms of when the next release will be, it will be once Ted’s work on the workshop comment page completes and the whole site is tested. The estimate is in the next a couple of weeks.

Options we have for the Bagets page:

1. Wait until the next release to publish everything; 2. Publish the Bagets page first and live with two issues above for a week or two.

Technically, I would recommend option 1 so everything looks great on the production site. However, depending on how urgent the Bagets page is expected to be available, Vera and David, please decide if you’d like to take option 2.

Please let me know if there’s anything unclear. Thanks.
