People in the know can answer when it's covenient
next week, but since it's on my mind, posting now.
As we write on Gender Gap Task Force main page: "In 2014 Wikipedia
co-founder [[Jimmy Wales]] said the [[Wikimedia Foundation]] was
"doubling down" its efforts to reach that goal and would be doing
more outreach and software changes. Reference:
failed' to fix gender imbalance, [[BBC]] interview August 8,
So info on status of interns, paid
staffers working on this, volunteer efforts, etc. and their
relation to the Wikimedia Gender Gap Task force would be
helpful. I know Wikimedia Gender Gap project which is not very
active, though sub-projects like
WikiWomen's Collaborative are doing some things.
Reminder of temporary address of en.Wikipedia Gender Gap Task
force's big list of
resources which is relevant to the above and does in fact
contain links where we can infer answers.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Carolmooredc/My_Sandbox_1
One reason I ask is I just put up this message at Wikimedia Gender Gap project but then started wondering
about the issues above.
Should this project be
listed on Outreach.wikimedia?? at https://meta.wikimedia.org
links to GLAM
(Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) and Wikimedia
Education Portal (re: different countries) (as well as Best
Practices and Success stories). Considering women are half the
human race, it seems sensible to include this project there. It
probably would bring more willing volunteers to outreach in
general as well. I don't see any discussion of this on this talk
page and only a link to Outreach Village Pump as a "good place
to discuss outreach to women."
So clarifications and updates would be great
and I'm sure lots of us are interested.
