Details of the workshop are as follows:
- Date: 30 April (Friday)

Intimation about the Research Proposal on Gender Gap
Hope you are doing well. We would like to inform you that we (User: Praveenky1589 and User: Nitesh Gill) have proposed a research project for Project Grant. The study will focus on analyzing gender-based differences in leadership of Indian Wikimedia communities. The purpose of the research project is to analyse the growth of projects under different leadership, reasons behind the difference in engagement, contribution and iterations of the project. It also aims to study-
How male and female leadership impacts volunteer contribution and their retention?
The output of events under different leadership and the future of projects and leaders.
The study will be conducted on the last 5 years of online and offline activities. For knowing more about the project please visit the proposal page and share your valuable feedback and suggestions on the talk page. We look forward to refining it more following your valuable inputs and questions.

Call for Election Volunteers: 2021 WMF Board elections
Based on an extensive call for feedback earlier this year, the Board of Trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees announced the plan for the 2021 Board elections. Apart from improving the technicalities of the process, the Board is also keen on improving active participation from communities in the election process. During the last elections, Voter turnout in prior elections was about 10% globally. It was better in communities with volunteer election support. Some of those communities reached over 20% voter turnout. We know we can get more voters to help assess and promote the best candidates, but to do that, we need your help.
We are looking for volunteers to serve as Election Volunteers. Election Volunteers should have a good understanding of their communities. The facilitation team sees Election Volunteers as doing the following:
- Promote the election and related calls to action in community channels.
- With the support from facilitators, organize discussions about the election in their communities.
- Translate “a few” messages for their communities
Check out more details about Election Volunteers and add your name next to the community you will support in this table. We aim to have at least one Election Volunteer, even better if there are two or more sharing the work. If you have any queries, please ping me under this message or email me.

Candidates from South Asia for 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board Elections
As you may be aware, the Wikimedia Foundation has started elections for community seats on the Board of Trustees. While previously there were three community seats on the Board, with the expansion of the Board to sixteen seats last year, community seats have been increased to eight, four of which are up for election this year.
In the last fifteen years of the Board's history, there were only a few candidates from the South Asian region who participated in the elections, and hardly anyone from the community had a chance to serve on the Board. While there are several reasons for this, this time, the Board and WMF are very keen on encouraging and providing support to potential candidates from historically underrepresented regions. This is a good chance to change the historical problem of representation from the South Asian region in high-level governance structures.
Ten days after the call for candidates began, there aren't any candidates from South Asia yet, there are still 10 days left! I would like to ask community members to encourage other community members, whom you think would be potential candidates for the Board. While the final decision is completely up to the person, it can be helpful to make sure that they are aware of the election and the call for candidates.
Let me know if you need any information or support.
Thank you, KCVelaga (WMF) ೧೦:೦೩, ೧೯ ಜೂನ್ ೨೦೨೧ (UTC)
