Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

perceived lack of support of women editors; battleground culture; high attrition of women editors; lack of editing of diverse content.

What is your solution?[edit]

  • Allies workshop
  • How to Be an Ally if You Are a Person with Privilege
  • training editors: I would like to see professional training of interested editors, the ally editors who want change, and the friends of allies who validate the problem, and the team
  • produce a plan of action, toolkit for allies to shift the culture towards civility and diversity; implement plan.


  • creating civility circles
  • creating an action plan for dealing with, minimizing incivility
  • shifting the culture
