Subject: [Gendergap] AdaCamp DC - July 10 & 11 - Apply today!
To: Increasing female participation in Wikimedia projects

(Please pardon the cross-posting!)

Hello everyone!

We have opened the application process for AdaCamp DC, which will take
place July 10 and 11 in Washington, D.C..  The event will be held just
down the street from where Wikimania will take place starting on July

What is AdaCamp?

It is an event, planned by the Ada Initiative, that focuses on
increasing women's participation in open technology and culture.
AdaCamp brings together people to build community, discuss issues
women have in common across open technology and culture fields, and
find ways to address them. Open technology and culture includes open
source software, Wikipedia and other wiki projects, open data, open
government, fan/remix culture, open libraries, and more. Attendance is
by invitation and attendees are selected from qualified applicants
through an open invitation process. Attendance is open to people of
all genders.


And please encourage anyone you know who might be interested.
Applicants of any gender, any background, any age, and experience
level encouraged to apply.

If you are interested in sponsoring AdaCamp, please do let me know!

Thank you,
