This was a planning page for phase two of the WikiWomen's Collaborative project. See the final report for outcomes of this phase and the project as a whole.

Goals & activities[edit]

While phase one focused primarily on launching the social spaces, building community interest and experimenting with content, phase two will focus on increasing the participation of women who are new to editing Wikipedia and related projects.

  • Increase the participation of women who are not yet editing Wikipedia.
  • Continue to experiment with calls to action that focus on women directly editing
  • Share help tools and how-to's
