Did you meet your goals? Are you happy with how the project went?

From what we expected from the event, i think we completed our goals. This was the first wiki diversity event and the main goal was to let people know what we are doing about these subject and how they can help to improve the diversity online content. We managed to bring new and experienced Wikimedians together, to learn and improve their skills. Like e.g 2 participants learned the infobox and only improved articles without an infobox. And one of them used the translation tool on beta version. And the new ones to write/improve at least one article.


Please report on your original project targets.

Target outcome Achieved outcome Explanation
number of participants 16
Number of articles created or improved 28 new articles created and around 10 improved. We were hopping to have more articles improved but the participants wanted to create new ones instead of improving the already existing one, so we didn't push that much the improving part.
Number of repeat participants 5 plus At least 4 of them are still editing on Wikipedia
