Connections[edit]

  • I gave two talks at Wikimania this year:
1. Intellectual property barriers to GLAM projects in the global south

My co-presenter Tanveer Hasan presented remotely in this session, while I was delivered my talk in person. The 25-minute-long session was attended by around 30 people. There was a brief round of questions and answers with the audience.
2. Lessons from creating a diversity toolkit

Chinmayi S K and I jointly delivered this talk. Around 35 people attended this 25-minute session. It was followed by a brief round of lively interaction with the audience.
  • Decolonising the Internet conference

I was invited to this conference, which I attended instead of Learning Days. I have documented some of my thoughts from this conference in the learning pattern linked from this page.
  • As a part of the Simple APG committee, which is a grants-advisory committee, I also attended a training session on understanding and tackling bias and prejudice.
  • I also had several meetings with other Wikimaniacs regarding my planned and ongoing work in GLAM.
