Abstract ملخص

Wikimedia has a vision of collecting the sum of all human knowledge. In order for us to build a global non-biased source of knowledge, we wouldn’t be able to have this happening unless everyone is represented. The questions this session will try to answer are, is the Arabic Wikipedia a friendly and non-discriminatory space for everyone, regardless of their sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religious views, and origin? What role does the Arabic Wikimedia movement community leaders play to encourage participation of minority and challenged groups? Does the Wikimedia social media channels play a role in supporting this goal?

What will attendees take away from this session? ماذا سيستفيد الحضور من هذه الجلسة؟
