Extend the project from Cultural Diversity Observatory to Diversity Observatory[edit]

Budget change request[edit]

An additional stage of this project is proposed to do in the months from June to October. This has been added as one extra column. The total amount of the project is the third column.


The project has been completed and the tasks designed for 2019 have given place to different dashboards, datasets, publications, and talks in the project site. During different conversations in Wikimedia events and in the frame of the Wikimedia Strategy 2030 conversations, some folks showed interest in having extended dashboards, tools, and data for some missing types of diversity: ethnic groups, LGTB+ groups, religious groups, among others. Following the same approach, we propose to expand the project so that the Cultural Observatory becomes the Diversity Observatory.

The proposal for the extension is at the end of the Timeline.
