Wikimedia Argentina decided to support this initiative by providing at least, logistics and venue. That was decided during November's board meeting in Buenos Aires. Also, WA decided to take the opportunity to organize a Gender Gap meeting in the same week.
The following endorsement was passed during the chapter's 18 December 2011 meeting (and will be linked to when minutes are posted):
- Resolve that
Wikimedia Australia supports in principle the conferences being organised for May 2012 in Buenos Aires for women in the Wikimedia Foundation movement. The first conference is a three day women (and transgendered) only wiki conference, facilitated using open-space in English and Spanish by Anne Goldenberg with Wikimedia Argentina being the formal hosts. It was conceptualised at GLAM Camp Amsterdam, and early organisers include women affiliated with Wikimedia Argentina, Wikimedia Israel, Wikimedia Australia, Wikimedia India, Wikimedia Portugal, Wikimedia Espana and Wikimedia UK. Wikimedia Chile consulted a male member early in the process. Subsequently, women from wikiHow have been included in the organising process. The event will be open to all women involved with the Wikimedia Movement, involved with wikis in general including commercial, non-profit and educational wikis. The second conference is a two day conference that will be about WMF's gender gap and is being primarily organised by Wikimedia Argentina that will be facilitated in English and Spanish. It will follow immediately after WikiWomenCamp with details regarding the name, conference facilitation type and participation based on gender in the near future. Wikimedia Australia will encourage its female members to attend this event and, as the budget allows, may provide assistance in costs to allow them to participate.
Wikimedia Austria invites all female editors and contributors from Austria to participate in this conference online or offline. To fund the long travel a travel budget of 5.000 EUR is provided for refund of airfare. Requests should be made to the WMAT board beforehand.
Beside that Wikimedia Austria provides 2.000 EUR to fund the organizer team, this money can be used for the conference or to fund travel costs from participants who do not have a supporting chapter.
