Harassment consultation 2015/Ideas/Ally Skills workshop

Project idea[edit]

Idea by:Ad Huikeshoven

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

Discussions can become aggressive, particularly noticeboard discussions of behavioral issues. Women's issues may be ignored or downplayed, and editors are sometimes criticized even for suggesting that there is a gender-gap angle to a discussion. Admins who moderate and close these discussions may not realize how their actions affect the way women view the conversation.

What is your solution?[edit]

In Mexico City I followed the Ally Skills Workshop which grew out of the idea to train all admins. The workshop was great. I belief the pilot was a success. The training of interested individuals should continue. This can be done by first training and certifying trainers in multiple language who will afterwards train admins.
