Hi Andrew and all
I'd be happy to be part of a panel on WiRs - I would be interested in talking about engaging with academic institutions as well as cultural orgs and with humanities and social sciences. Along the lines Mike suggested about lessons learned and building up an understanding of the WiR over time. 
We could record a few 5 minute talks from various perspectives then have a discussion live with those available.

Hi all,

There are two days left for submissions for Wikimania panels or sessions.

Has anyone submitted or is anyone planning on submitting sessions on their GLAM work, or might folks be interested in making a WREN panel to discuss the last year's worth of learnings, and also do some evangelism for WREN?

A very regrettable thing for this year's Wikimania is that the submissions are not public. That makes it impossible to figure out what other people are submitting or what they are thinking. So if you have any sessions you are proposing, do share them here. Or we can combine forces on a session.

Some thoughts:
1. From the Smithsonian side, we will likely submit one about the American Women's History Initiative and summing up our edit-a-thon and other activities - what we learned, what techniques have worked, and plans for the future.

2. GLAM tools and best practices - Incorporating SDC into the workflow, best tools for 2022? Might this be a session of interest for folks to collaborate on?

3. We've had a GLAM Culture Crawl day in the past, where we have training sessions and discussions oriented towards teaching GLAMs new to wiki contribution. Might this be an interesting thing to propose?

Any other ideas welcome.
