Community Content Campaigns
Conversation hour held by the Campaign Programs team.

You are invited to join an Office Hour led by Masana Mulaudzi, Senior Manager of the Campaigns Programs team on Feb 16, 2023 at 4pm UTC.

March 8 marks the annual celebration of International Women’s Day, and an opportunity to advance the achievements of the women’s rights and gender equality movement globally. This seminal international holiday also coincides with Women’s History Month in the United States, the United Kingdom and Australia.

To respond to the gender gap and create opportunities to strengthen the gender diverse content on Wikipedia, the Gender Organizing community in the Wikimedia Movement host an annual campaign during International Women’s Month. This campaign is an important opportunity for the Wikimedia movement to engage with the work of different communities highlighting the gender gap in each Wikimedia project.

The Office Hour will facilitate connection with gender organizers in the movement to understand how we can better respond to this community’s needs ahead of big annual campaigns, like the ones planned for International Women’s Day.

We would like to invite you to a conversation hour to:

  • Share what your community is doing for this year in campaign organizing on the Gender Gap during International Women’s Day and beyond.
  • Learn about this year’s Central Notice banner and central calendar and how you can give feedback to them.
  • Learn how the new event registration tool can help improve your registration experience for newcomers joining events.
