Wikimedia Gender Gap Observatory

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This page aims to track the presence of women both on the boards and in the leadership of affiliated Wikimedia groups, as well as the main bodies of the movement and the Wikimedia Foundation. The idea is to have a more accurate vision of how many women are taking positions of leadership and thus promote more equity in our movement.
