> The Art+Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-thon seeks a Program Coordinator to support 
> the exponential growth of our global initiative.
> Art+Feminism is an award winning campaign to improve coverage of women and 
> the arts on Wikipedia, and to encourage female editorship. Wikipedia’s gender 
> trouble is well documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found 
> that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female. We organize an 
> annual editathon in March; at our 2016 Edit-a-thon, 2,500 participants 
> convened at 180 locations on all 6 inhabited continents to create or improve 
> over 3,500 articles. Our annual edit-a-thons have been widely covered by The 
> Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, ARTnews, and Art in America amongst 
> over one hundred others. Our organizing practices are horizontal and 
> rhizomatic and our feminism is trans-inclusive and intersectional.
> The Program Coordinator will play a key role in the development and success 
> of a project that promotes inclusivity in Wikipedia editing, and women in the 
> arts. We have built a robust set of digital tools and practices that the 
> Program Coordinator will be able to build upon. The Program Coordinator will 
> manage communication and project pipelines alongside the core organizing 
> committee. The ideal candidate has strong project management skills, a 
> demonstrated history of work in social justice and an interest in feminist 
> work, a working knowledge of the Wikipedia community or other online 
> technology community, and a flexible schedule. Fluency in a language other 
> than English is preferred.
