Hi all,

(Pardon the cross-posting)

Starting today, we want to show Wikimedia some love in a very special way:
talking about diversity! [1]

Diversity in Wikimedia projects is key to achieve our shared vision: that
anyone can contribute in the sum of all knowledge. We know many efforts
have been made to bridge many gaps.

Have you:

* preserved your cultural or national history through photo contests and
editing events?

* worked to enrich a particular language or cultural group on Wikimedia?

* studied diversity issues in online communities?

_What have you learned when trying to encourage diversity on Wikimedia?_

The Learning and Evaluation team invites all community members to share
what they know about bringing diversity on Wikimedia projects. This
initiative seeks to create a body of knowledge around diversity outcomes
for events, projects and programs, in a way to give support to
Grantmaking’s Inspire Campaign  (coming up the first week of March). If you
worked to make Wikimedia projects more diverse, in content or community, what
has worked for you? what has not worked? Share what you know with the world!

There are multiple ways to engage:

1. Share a problem

2. Share a solution

3. Endorse problems and solutions to vote them up in importance

4. Writing a Learning Pattern (that addresses any of the problems/solutions

We will be awarding our brand new L&E Barnstars[2] to contributors during
this special campaign =)

Visit the campaign page [1] to contribute and discuss, and if you are
twitter user, use #ILoveDiversity to promote the campaign for others to

Happy editing!
