To: Increasing female participation in Wikimedia projects <
[log in to unmask]>
I wanted to send a second reminder about *AdaCamp DC*, which will take
place in (you guessed it!) Washington, D.C. on July 10-11. We intentionally
wanted it to take place during Wikimania since we have a strong cross-over
of attendees. So far we've had a remarkable response from the international
community, with attendees ranging from everywhere including Australia to
Burma, the United Kingdom to Poland!
From the website:
" AdaCamp is an Ada Initiative <http://adainitiative.org/> event focused on
increasing women’s participation in open technology and culture. AdaCamp
brings together people to build community, discuss issues women have in
common across open technology and culture fields, and find ways to address
them. Open technology and culture includes open source software, Wikipedia
and other wiki projects, open data, open government, fan/remix culture,
open libraries, and more. Attendance is by invitation and attendees are
selected from qualified applicants through an open invitation process.
Attendance is open to people of all genders. The first AdaCamp was AdaCamp
Melbourne <http://melbourne.adacamp.org/>, in January 2012."
We hope you'll join us and please apply. Also, feel free to forward this
onto your colleagues, cohorts and comrades!
