Summary edit

CEE region seems to be quite underrepresented in this year's WikiWomenCamp 2017 (Mexico City, 6-8 July). Since the participation in the event was organized by invitations (not applications for scholarships), this probably means that there are not enough wiki women leaders in the region, who are internationally recognized, and we need to talk about this.

We're willing to share our impressions from this event and motivate more people, especially women, be more active in this direction, in order for our region to be more strongly represented next time. :)

On the bright side, at least in the lightning talks, we will draw attention to the CEE region, with respect to the CEE Women challenge in the frames of the CEE Spring 2017 and 100wikidays.

Expected outcomes edit

More, and specific, details to come after the end of the event (8th July).

Duration (without Q&A) edit

20 minutes
