How Wiki Education pursues knowledge equity

Type of session:


Session theme(s):

Diversity & Inclusion, Education


Knowledge equity is one of the pillars of the Wikimedia strategic direction — and it's also one of the strategic priorities for Wiki Education, the organization that runs the education program in the U.S. and Canada. In this session, Wiki Education staff will explain how we've tackled equity in our programmatic works including:

  • Supporting new contributors who add diverse content to Wikipedia.
  • Bringing more diverse contributors to Wikipedia.
  • Guiding contributors to use diverse authors in their citations in our support materials.
  • Creating new training materials about contributing content related to knowledge equity.
  • Empowering an effective academic advisory board to help us meet our goals.
  • And more!

In this session, we'll describe our programmatic work and showcase our impact in knowledge equity.
