WikiWomenCamp 2012 is being organized in Buenos Aires for women in the Wikimedia movement. The conference is a three day women, by sex or gender, only wiki conference, facilitated using open-space in English and Spanish by Anne Goldenberg with Wikimedia Argentina being the formal hosts.
The camp was conceptualised at GLAM Camp Amsterdam, and early organisers include women affiliated with Wikimedia Argentina, Wikimedia Australia, Wikimedia India, Wikimedia Indonesia, Wikimedia Israel, Wikimedia Portugal, Wikimedia Españaand Wikimedia UK. Subsequently, women from wikiHow, Open-space facilitator Anne Goldenberg and Hacktivist Christina Haralanova have been included in the organising process. We consulted with a male representative from Wikimedia Chile very early in the process, and Wikimedia Bangladesh‘s was consulted to gain additional perspective. This camp sits alongside a two day conference open to women and men, where the focus of the conference will be discussing Wikimedia’s gender gap.
The event will be open to all women involved with the Wikimedia Movement, and involved with wikis in general including commercial, non-profit and educational wikis.
