Africa & Middle East Regional Committee Application edit
We hope this email finds you well. Thank you for applying to be part of the Africa & Middle East Regional Committee.
It was great learning about your work with Wikimedia Côte D'Ivoire and your experience training on Wikipedia projects and other communnity projects.
After a thorough review of your application, we unfortunately will not be inviting you to the next phase of the selection process for the committee.
However, later this year, we are planning to invite all Regional Committees to consider additional members for the committee based on areas of expertise or regional knowledge that may be missing or needed. We are striving to form a committee with gender, knowledge, and geographic distribution balance for the region.
In case the committee chooses to include your application in the second review, we will reach out to you.
Thank you for your continued contribution to Wikimedia's vision of a world in which every single human can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.

Queering Wikipedia 2023 conference edit
Wikimedia LGBT+ User Group and the organizing team of Queering Wikipedia is delivering the Queering Wikipedia 2023 Conference for LGBT+ Wikimedians and allies, as a hybrid, bilingual and trans-local event. It is online on 12, 14 and 17 May, the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia #IDAHOBIT, with offline events at around 10 locations on 5 continents in the 5-day span as QW2023 Nodes.
The online program is delivered as a series of keynotes, panels, presentations, workshops, lightning talks and creative interventions, starting on Friday noon (UTC) with the first keynote of Dr Nishant Shah entitled: I spy, with my little AI — Wikiway as a means to disrupt the ‘dirty queer’ impulses of emergent AI platforms. Second keynote is at Sunday’s closure by Esra’a Al Shafei, Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees vice chair, entitled: Digital Public Spaces for Queer Communities.
If you have been an active Wikimedian or enthusiast, supporting LGBT+ activities or if you identify as part of the larger LGBT+ community and allies in Wikimedia, please join us in advancing this thematic work. We encourage you to join online or in person with fellow Wikimedians if it is easy and safe to do so. Our working languages are English and Spanish, with possible local language support at sites of Nodes.
Registration for the online event is free and is open until Wednesday May 10th at 18:00 UTC, for safety protocol. Late event registration approval and event access denial is at the discretion of organizers.
More information, and registration details, may be found on Meta at QW2023
