Stories about sharing


Interesting stories about applying the skills I want to share.

I have worked a lot in preventing volunteer burnout - I've organized a mindfulness training for wikimedians and appreciation programs. I am also working on a peer support group for plwiki admins. And I've organized professional mediations traning for Wikimedians. You can learn more here about mindfulness for wikimedians: https://diff.wikimedia.org/2021/04/01/why-we-taught-wikimedians-how-to-breathe-mindfully-and-what-you-should-know-if-you-want-to-do-the-same/ and about our program preventing burnout including monitoring volunteer engagement: https://youtube/nLRNifOkhEc?t=161
