2018 Project Grants: Smithsonian Wikimedian-in-Residence for Gender Representation
I submitted a proposal to the 2018 Wikimedia Projects Grants for a Smithsonian Wikimedian-in-Residence for Gender Representation. The goal is 3 parts:
- Leverage the Smithsonian's new scholarship, exhibits, projects and programs from their Smithsonian American Women's History Initiative to increase the representation of women on multiple wikimedia projects; wikidata, commons, and wikipedia.
- Increase the number of diverse and female editors to write their own history.
- Make the case to Smithsonian leadership for an Open Knowledge Coordinator permanent staff position.
If you are interest in advising on any of these goals, kindly leave a note on my talk page!
