Abstract[edit source]

Strategic workshop for campaign organizers bridging Wikimedia Knowledge Gaps, specially from a Gender perspective. The focus relies on the transnational territories of Spanish & Portuguese-speaking communities, but everyone is welcome to take part in the workshop.
The session will be carried out in Spanish and Portuguese, with live interpretation

Description[edit source]

This strategic workshop aims to strengthen the network between Wikimedia movement organizers working on Knowledge Gaps with a gender lens, and focusing on Spanish & Portuguese-speaking communities. We set out from the Latin American experience, but the objective is to enable the interweaving of inter-regional collective actions for the next year. To achieve Knowledge Equity, we need to understand the gender gap as an interconnected issue, which needs to be addressed alongside many other cultural, political, and epistemological concerns. In this workshop, we will share some examples of how gender issues could be included into other Knowledge Gaps campaigns, as we did in the 2023 Wiki For Human Rights Campaign in Latin America, that focused on the topic of “Gender & Biodiversity”. We will then move on to understand the current challenges & opportunities that campaign organizers (particularly in our broad transnational space of Spanish & Portuguese communities) are experiencing when addressing the Gender Gap. To conclude, we will point to actions that could lead to re-imagine gender gap campaigns and future directions for our work.

Qn. How does your session relate to the event themes: Diversity, Collaboration Future?

The session is precisely about enabling community discussion and planning of future transnational collaboration regarding Knowledge Equity. The focused collaboration is the co-organization of campaigns targeting knowledge gaps and diversity (in terms of gender-related content and participation) on Wikimedia. Furthermore, the transnational collaboration relates to cultural diversity. Wikimedian Spanish & Portuguese-speaking communities stand majorly in-between Latin America and Europe, yet aim to bring upon a greater participation of African and Native American groups. A hybrid session between these languages and territories bridge different wikimedian contexts, thus providing a substantial experience exchange.
