This group brings together Wikimedians from across the movement who are working to make Wikipedia and its sister projects more inclusive. Guided by our values, motivation is found in the efforts to make Wikipedia and Wikimedia projects inclusive of a wide range of individuals, communities, backgrounds and knowledge. And we know there is a lot to do. What have we learnt about taking inclusive action the Wikimedian way from a wide range of initiatives to increase diversity in Wikimedia projects? How can this (collective) knowledge guide further actions?
