Hi ManasaRao. You are currently editing a report template at Grants:APG/Report preload, that is, a template for reports for all grantees. If this page is final, do you want it to be moved to CIS-A2K report at Grants:APG/Proposals/2015-2016 round2/The Centre for Internet and Society/Progress report form? If you don't want to publish it, can you please move it to your user space (e.g. User:ManasaRao/APG report? Thanks — NickK (talk) 15:44, 17 January 2017 (UTC)

Hello Manasa! I had to revert the page so others can use it. You'll have to dig in the history and make some kind of copy paste to have it on the right page. Your last version is here. Cheers! Delphine (WMF) (talk) 21:36, 18 January 2017 (UTC)

Wikimedia diversity - What happened at the conference and how to follow up[edit]

Hello ManasaRao,
We are messaging you now because you signed up as an ambassador for Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017. We are sharing this message far and wide, so apologies in advance if you are receiving this message twice.

During the conference, we dedicated a full afternoon to discussing the strategic direction and what it means for the work on diversity in the Wikimedia movement. Compiling the outcomes of those conversations, we summarized the key problems and solutions identified, and we created a summary statement. But the conversation is far from over! We still need to hear from diversity ambassadors: (1) what does working for diversity mean at your local context?; (2) what are the needs that should be addressed; (3) what resources are relevant for these identified needs?

We know that diversity gains meaning in context, and this is why we need to hear every voice. Please take a few minutes to go over to the diversity conversation page and add your comments.

If you’d like to stay in touch, and share your experience working for diversity with others, add your profile on our group here.

Thank you and see you on the wiki,
Sara (talk)

Wikimania Ambassador[edit]

Hi!

I noticed that you have signed up as a Wikimedia Diversity Ambassador, after the Diversity Conference held in Stockholm 2017. In August this year, Wikimania will take place in Stockholm, and our goal is to use Ambassadors to reach out to local communities, to spread the news about the conference and the outcomes afterwards. The conference theme (still to be announced) will connect closely to diversity. If you would like to be involved as a Wikimania ambassador, please sign up at the Ambassador page at the Wikimania wiki!

A first thing to do, if you would like to help out, would be to translate the scholarship page at the Wikimania wiki into the language(s) you speak!

Best, Eric Luth (WMSE) (talk) 09:18, 13 February 2019 (UTC)
