Greetings Program Leaders and Evaluators!

Important updates from Learning and Evaluation:

== Education Program Toolkit [1] ==

On February 26, we launched the first Wikimedia Program guide, the
Education Program Toolkit [1]. This new resource was a joint effort of
Program Evaluation and Design team, and Wikipedia Education team. The
knowledge that we hope to convey with this resource stems from the
experience of different program leaders all over the world, capture through
Learning Patterns. We invite Education program coordinators to use it,
expand it and make it their own in multiple ways!

== New Inspire Grants Campaign to work on Gender Diversity [2]==

The Community department successfully launched a new campaign for Inspire
Grants. This effort puts a special emphasis on projects that focus on the
gender gap. Grants are accepted until March 31. Find out more on the
campaign page on Meta [2]!

Remember you can still give support to the campaign by sharing your
experience to bring diversity on Wikimedia! Contribute your knowledge on
Let’s Talk Diversity [3]. You can share a problem, a solution or both. You
can also start a Learning Pattern that gives a response to any of the
problems shared. Contributors will receive one of the new Learning Pattern
