Grants talk:Project/Rapid/AWM/Symposium 2017/Report/Reallocation
Reallocated funds were used to hold a Wikipedia meetup and editing session at the 2018 Joint Math Meetings. There were seven participants, all women, from diverse backgrounds; three were new editors. The meetup resulted in three new Wikipedia articles about women in mathematics and five expanded profiles. A complete list of participants and articles may be found at the AWM Symposium Meetup Page.
AWM editathon participants continue to share their enthusiasm and experience with others. For example, Jitka Stehnova reported on the AWM's Wikipedia efforts to the Joint Committee on Women in the Mathematical Sciences, Ursula Whitcher spoke about representation and Wikipedia at the 2018 SACNAS convention (see slides here), and Marie Vitulli drew on experiences from the AWM Symposium meetup to lead a 2019 editathon at Clemson.
Grant Funds Spent
- Snacks and candy for meeting participants: $25
- Meetup cards: $39.98 (2 packs of 50) + $7.25 shipping = $47.23
- Student meeting registration: $74*2 = $148
Student registration was $3 more than our initial estimate, but one of our graduate student attendees (Francesca Gandini) was able to use institutional funds for registration, rather than accessing grant funds.
We have $76.11 remaining.
Thank you for submitting this additional report! I have reviewed it and the expense documentation and am accepting both. I am happy to hear that the grant sparked so much enthusiasm and follow-up! This grant will be complete as soon as the remaining funds are resolved. Would you like to allocate them toward your open grant request, if it is approved?
Thank you for all your hard work on this grant and for sharing all you learned with WMF and the community.
