We just received the great news that the Wikimedia Diversity Conference
2017 has received the full grant from the Wikimedia Foundation's Event
Grants. We look very much forward to hosting the conference and to
welcome you to Stockholm the 3-5 November 2017.
We now need your help in making it a success! We invite members from your
Wikimedia organization or user group to sign up as ambassadors for the
conference. Ambassadors are champions of Diversity on Wikimedia and
volunteer to use that power to support the conference in several ways.
Support before the conference. Ambassadors help communicate to local
communities that the conference will happen and provide updates of the
planning process, such as when to register and how to apply for
and why submit a proposal. The other way is to
and ideas for the program and for the overall
event. Ambassadors can
organize discussions at other conferences
taking place prior to the
Support during the conference. Ambassadors can also volunteer their
champion powers during the conference to support documentation and
of discussions and insights, facilitate the
implementation of the
with the facilitation team, support
participants with helpful advice
Support after the conference. Ambassadors help disseminate the
knowledge gained during the conference to their communities and to
participate in networks to continue working with Diversity.
Active participation as an ambassador will support a scholarship
We would be grateful if you could forward this possibility to your
Furthermore, we are actively looking for more funding from sponsors, but
we do have limited opportunities to provide scholarships and only parts
the travel costs for participants can currently
be covered. If your
Wikimedia organization has the opportunity to provide a full or partial
scholarship for your volunteers or staff, please let us know. We would be
happy to highlight your involvement and support on the conference
If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to get in
contact with us!
We intend to send out the registration form at the end of next week.
