A bunch of hard-working Wikimedians got a grant to run the Ada
Initiative Ally Skills workshop at Wikimania. The workshop will teach
Wikimedia admins and editors how to support women in Wikimedia
projects with specific practical skills (including how to best use
existing policies). The workshop will also teach people about the
mindset of trolls and what strategies work best for foiling them.

If the pilot workshop at Wikimania goes well, the Ada Initiative will
apply for a grant to teach a train-the-trainers class so that
Wikimedians around the world can teach the workshop to other
Wikimedians (with a focus on reaching admins and very active editors)
and adapt it to multiple languages and cultures.
If you are going to Wikimania, or if you know someone who would be a
good person to attend this workshop, please apply or encourage them to
apply through the form on that blog post! You can also retweet the

You can help increase the participation of women in open technology and culture!
