Hi all, We are excited to announce that the application is open <https://goo.gl/forms/dimatR4UKCjWSOwn1> for attending the Wikimedia Diversity Conference 2017 <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Diversity_Conference_2017>, 3-5 November in Stockholm, Sweden.
Please help share this with staff and volunteers who want to work together and share strategies to support and promote diversity in the Wikimedia movement. There are (at least) four reasons to register: - Participate: All interested participants must register to show their interest in attending the conference and that they qualify given the theme of the conference. - Shape the program: The first section of the registration is about the conference program and the questions are for interested participants to let the organising team know what they wish to learn, share and the kind of experience they have from working with diversity in Wikimedia. The participants are the core of the conference. - Lead activities: Anyone who registers can indicate if they want to lead activities during the conference, such as talks, discussions and/or training. With this information, the organising team will approach participants on how to engage in the conference and actively contribute to shaping the program. There will not be a traditional separate proposal submission process. - Apply for scholarship: The registration form also has a section for scholarship application <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Diversity_Conference_2017/Scholarships> and participants who want to apply for scholarship 2 and 3 should do so by 20 August (they are mainly intended for volunteers). We look forward to hosting these discussions on diversity and Wikimedia impact in Stockholm.
