Women's Wiki Workshop report

Dear Soma and Jayanta,
I'm writing to introduce both of you to Nitika Tandon, consultant to the
Wikimedia Foundation - who is based in New Delhi. (Jayanta, you may have
met Nitika already at the WikiConference in Mumbai in Nov).
Nitika is one of a currently three-person team that is aiming to support
the Foundation's plan to grow the editing communities, including women
editors, in India.
I told her about the joint session Sanhita had organized with Kolkata
wikipedians in March at the Seagull Media Resource Centre. If I remember
correctly, there were 18 faculty members from women's studies departments
in Kolkata and many of them were interested in taking this further...but
nothing has happened since.
Nitika: Soma Sengupta is the founder of Sanhita, a women's information
resource centre in Kolkata - and a dear friend. She and Jayanta have been
in touch for more than a year now, she has attended other wiki meet-ups,
and hosted the meeting referred to above. Please see the report on it in
April on the India list (from me, so search for my name). Just in case you
don't know Jayanta (which I doubt), he is one of the driving forces behind
the Kolkata meet-ups etc.
Do be in touch with them to explore this further.
Also, I will be in Kolkata 13-20 Jan, most probably. See you'll then,
With Warm Regards,
