I'd like to add a reference to organizations that the new community
members belong too as the pressure comes from their chain of command

How's this?

To proactively work with new community members and organizations to
help them become
effective contributors in OpenStack by sharing tips, information,
resources and guidance and
to facilitate collaboration between the people working on initiatives
related to community goals.
