Poster presented at Wikimania 2018
Slides from the presentation

I presented a poster on "Mapping and bridging the gender gap, an ethnographic study of Indian Wikipedians and their motivations to contribute" and a talk "Research related to gender gap on Wikipedia: What do we know so far", both of which initiated further discussions. I co-hosted the WikiWomen's Lunch, in which around 50 women participated. I served in the Program Committee of Wikimania 2018, where I reviewed and scored the submissions.
