How Our Governance Structres Could and Should Foster Diversity and Inclusion[edit]

Executive Director Wikimedia Österreich
Over the last year WMAT reformed it's governance structures, one main aim was to build a framework that fosters diversity and inclusion. As a result we passed some substantial changes to our bylaws during the last general assembly. These include inclusive, gender-neutral language in the bylaws and a link to our friendly space policy, so these two documents conflict as little as possible.

Let's Testament[edit]

User:KuboF Hromoslav
Esperanto and Free Knowledge, Leader of the Preparatory Committee
Wikipedia, as a libre education project, can thrive in non-libre world because it stands on the principle of non-copyrightability of idea. But another projects, like Commons and Wikisource, require explicit free license. Experience shows that many people are willing to free their work, but they do not do because of lack of law understanding of both the licenses themself and the process of freeing. So, let's help them by providing an appropriate tool. (session to invite you for feedback and ideas after the session)help
