Proposed participation[edit]

I am an active wikipedian with expertise in Gender and only female member of Wikimedia Bangladesh. I have had a partial scholarship acceptance in wikipedia Diversity conference. This diversity conference will allow me to meet other community's wikipedians and talk about the issue of Gender. I will be sharing my experience about mainstreaming Gender issues in Bengali wikipedia.

Goal and expected impact[edit]

As a result of my discussion, participants will be aware of how gender issues are considered in Bengali wikipedia, what are the challenges for women and girls in developing countries like Bangladesh to contribute in wiki projects. I can contribute to enrich discussions and enrich my knowledge. Again my attained knowledge in this conference will be an asset for my community to take further Gender action.
