Wikipedia Diversity Conference: Bridging Communities

323

Published on

Wikipedia’s community is not the only technical one tackling questions of diversity in their ranks. What are other open source communities doing to address issues of representation and participation? This workshop is an opportunity to review research and strategies across communities, including recent work within the OpenStreetMap project. A fundamental assumption is that we cannot move a conversation about technical equity alone, it is only by working together that we can build the alliances, dialogue, support, techniques, and accountability required for technical equity.
