My work

In addition to my contributions in content creation, I've had the privilege of conducting workshops, trainings, and strategic discussions across India, where I introduced new editors to the realms of Hindi and Punjabi Wikipedia, fostering growth and diversity.

I am a South Asia representative on the Movement Charter Drafting Committee. This is a significant milestone in my journey within the Wikimedia movement and a responsibility I hold with great honor and dedication.

As an MCDC member, I'm part of a team entrusted with the vital task of shaping the future of the Wikimedia movement through the drafting of a comprehensive Movement Charter. This Charter will serve as a guiding document, reflecting the collective aspirations, values, and principles of Wikimedia communities worldwide.

I was also a Co-Lead for the Wiki Women Camp 2023, a platform dedicated to plan the necessary actions and support required to expand the ongoing initiatives for empowering women editors. As a leader and organizer, I facilitated designing the program and sessions aimed at amplifying the voices of women within Wikimedia.

My commitment extends globally, as I co-founded the steering committee for the advancement of the Wiki Women Camp Declaration. Together, we work towards fostering gender equity and inclusion throughout the Wikimedia movement.

Currently, I am excited to be involved in shaping the Wiki Women Summit 2024, collaborating with fellow Wikimedians to design an impactful event that celebrates and elevates the contributions of women editors worldwide.
