  • Can share information about diversity in the community they work with, able to identify the challenges and propose solutions for the same.
  • Want to work together and share strategies to support and promote diversity in Wikimedia.
  • Are from a diverse range of backgrounds and experience levels. Anyone with rare or notable experience or background that would add value to the event are particularly welcome.

Selection Criteria

Scholarship award will be based on the following criteria:

Impact on Wikimedia community

Examples of impact on Wikimedia community:

  1. Improved the skills/increased the awareness of persons from underrepresented groups about Wikimedia projects (such as organizing an event for teaching senior citizens to edit Wikipedia).
  2. Identified/addressed content gaps/participation gaps in Wikimedia movement (conducted research about gender gap on Wikipedia’s content, created a social media platform for helping LGBT+ Wikimedians to socialize and collaborate).
  3. Increased access to Wikimedia projects among underrepresented groups (worked on Wikipedia Zero to allow free access to Wikipedia, improved Kiwix to support offline Wikipedia).

Collaboration within the movement

Examples of collaboration within the movement:

  1. Has undertaken leadership roles to promote diversity of participation in Wikimedia projects (such as started a taskforce or Wikiproject to bring knowledge from/about Indian art forms).
  2. Has championed for the cause of diversity by working with/for underrepresented groups as a leader or ally and increased their visibility within Wikimedia projects (worked on anti-harassment policy, wrote a press article about Wikimedians with special needs).
  3. Has helped to bring about cultural change towards making Wikimedia projects more accessible and welcoming to underrepresented groups (worked on notability policy to allow perspectives from underrepresented groups on Wikipedia, advocated for diversity in Wikimedia movement’s strategy process).
  4. Has worked towards creating partnerships between Wikimedia movement and external organizations that resonate Wikimedia’s value of commitment to openness and diversity.

Participants are encouraged to think beyond these examples and write freely about any experience they think is valid in the context of diversity in Wikimedia movement. We are particularly looking for rare experiences and perspectives that can be shaped into a concrete idea or a working goal during the conference.
