WikiWomen will be organised as an OpenSpace. The open space is a special type of (un)conference, focussed on a particular topic, where all the participants are actually contributors & decision-makers. There are no special guests/speakers, no passive listeners. The aim is to stress on the skills and expertise of the participants, and to involve all of them in an equal way.
Between 23 and 25 May 2012, the first WikiWomenCamp 2012 will be organized in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The conference is a three day women-only conference, aiming to discuss the gender issues concerning the Wikipedia contribution and growth. Facilitated by Anne Goldenberg in English and Spanish, the format of the conference will be an open-space.
WikiWomenCamp initiated as an initiative aiming to open up opportunities for women to get together, learn from each other's experience, network with other women who can assist them in meeting their goals and share passions, and discuss issues related to being women involved in the wider Wikipedia (and wiki) community with similar like-minded women.
