>> To: Mumbai List Wikimedia <wikimedia-in-...@lists.wikimedia.org>
>> Dear all,
>> Sorry for the short notice, but was trying to get enough women editors
>> from Mumbai involved and find a venue - both are on track now, so this can
>> Am writing to invite the Mumbai wp community to an informal meeting
>> Sunday 16 Sept to plan a wiki academy or workshop for women in Mumbai.
>> Here is where I am coming from: In my day job, I run a non-profit called
>> of View <http://www.pointofview.org>, which promotes the points of view
>> of women through media, art and culture. In this capacity and others, I
>> routinely come across women, including other NGOs working with women, and
>> with women bloggers and others active on social media. Many of them have

>> place. Pranav and I visited one such org in Mumbai earlier this year, but
>> it's too time-consuming going org by org.
>> Instead, I propose that we start with an introductory workshop for
>> interested individuals/organizations and then perhaps follow up with those
>> who are more interested...hoping to do the introductory workshop sometime
>> in November. And hoping that each of you can similarly invite interested
>> women to the Nov workshop.
>> This is a working meeting devoted to planning this workshop. If you would
>> like to be part of it and help reduce the gender gap at wikipedia, please
>> do come!
>> The meeting will be held at 4 pm on Sunday 16 Sept at Pinstorm's office
>> (many thanks, Netra for offering us this facility).
