Wikipedia is the world’s largest online and user-generated encyclopedia. Knowledge is power, and Wikipedia has the potential to color our view of the world. But there is great imbalance between men and women on the website, like in society at large.

The workshop will showcase a platform for new editors of diverse nature, emphasis on inclusion of new female editors. It will open gates and will make anyone feel, "anyone can edit".

Together, we want to bring about a more gender-equal internet – and a more gender-equal world.
