A planning meeting tomorrow March 21 at 5:30 at Sanitas Brewery,
for the "Outdoor Women of Wikipedia" editathon event next Sunday,
sounds perfect to me, and it sounds like we have at least 4 who can make it.

We are excited to announce that the application is open
<https://goo.gl/forms/dimatR4UKCjWSOwn1> for attending the Wikimedia
Diversity Conference 2017
November in Stockholm, Sweden.
Please help share this with staff and volunteers who want to work together
and share strategies to support and promote diversity in the Wikimedia
There are (at least) four reasons to register:
Participate: All interested participants must register to show their
interest in attending the conference and that they qualify given the theme
of the conference.
Shape the program: The first section of the registration is about the
conference program and the questions are for interested participants to let
the organising team know what they wish to learn, share and the kind of
experience they have from working with diversity in Wikimedia. The
participants are the core of the conference.
Lead activities: Anyone who registers can indicate if they want to lead
activities during the conference, such as talks, discussions and/or
training. With this information, the organising team will approach
participants on how to engage in the conference and actively contribute to
shaping the program. There will not be a traditional separate proposal
Apply for scholarship: The registration form also has a section for
and participants who want to apply for scholarship 2 and 3 should do so by
20 August (they are mainly intended for volunteers).
We look forward to hosting these discussions on diversity and Wikimedia
impact in Stockholm.

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 scholarship
and why submit a proposal. The other way is to provide constructive input
and ideas for the program and for the overall event. Ambassadors can also
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 curation
of discussions and insights, facilitate the implementation of the program
with the facilitation team, support participants with helpful advice and
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 of 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 portal.
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.
