From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
WikiWomenCamp 2012 is being organized in Buenos Aires for women in the Wikimedia movement. The conference is a three day women, by sex or gender, only wiki conference, facilitated using open-space in English and Spanish by AnneGoldenberg with Wikimedia Argentina being the formal hosts.
WikiWomenCamp came out of conversations between women around the world who are involved with Wikimedia's Chapters and GLAM efforts. Soon, other women involved with other Wikimedia Foundation projects and non-WMF wikis were involved as we started planning the conference. We wanted an opportunity for women (by gender or sex) to get together, learn from each other's experience, network with other women who can assist us in meeting our goals, feel like we are part of the Wiki Ohana, discuss issues related to being women involved in the wider wiki community, and share our passions with similar, like minded women.
At WikiWomenCamp, all women involved with the wiki community are welcome! You do not need be an expert at editing wikis, in running chapters or work for a wiki related organization. Collaboration thrives on diversity. All you need to bring is an open mind, and a willingness to participate, whether by teaching, taking an active role in discussions, helping people to connect to those who can assist them, or sharing your own stories. And, don't forget, WikiWomenCamp is what we make it, so let's make it enlightening, productive and fun.
The event will be open to all women involved with the Wikimedia movement, and involved with wikis in general including commercial, non-profit and educational wikis. The conference will be on 23, 24, and 25 May 2012 in Buenos Aires.
