Great, thank you Maria.

Will there also be some room for feedback from women who don't want to express with their faces bare?


I would also appreciate to know if any similar initiative is already in the pipe for other people that might face discremination issues such as LGBT+[1],  Asperger Syndrome[2]. I don't pretend this is an extensive list, of course, be bold about raising awareness about other discreminatory problems you might know.

Cheers

*Hi all, In honour of Women’s History Month, the Community Engagement
department is hosting a series of conversations with community members
about Women in the Wikimedia movement
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Community_Engagement/Women_in_the_Wikimedia_movement:_Conversations_with_communities>,
and what their experience is like contributing to our projects. Our
conversations will focus on women within three strategic areas of our work:
Programs, Technical Spaces, and Leadership positions. Each conversation
will have two community members presenting on their work, and 15-20 minutes
at the end for conversation, follow up questions, and discussion. The goal
of these discussions is to foster understanding of challenges and
inequalities that women face throughout our movement, and to engage with
our communities to help better address them.These conversations will be
online events, streamed on YouTube, and hosted on BlueJeans. If you would
like to participate in these events, please add the event to your calendar,
