Hi all, thanks for the feedback and enthusiasm.

After reviewing all of the responses, I will submit a basic panel with a number of quick 5 minute lightning talks (pre-recorded preferably) of WiR would be great, and a roundtable afterwards of folks who might be interested in discussing new opportunities with the audience.

We can determine the exact folks later, but for now I'll list Jamie, Tochi, Mike, Amanda, Rachel, Florence, and myself.

Hello Andrew
A WREN panel sounds good. I would like to definitely be part of it but a recorded video as I already have one with WMDE and planning to submit another before the 12th deadline.

Let me know how I can get involved.

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.
