Education/EduWiki Outreach Collaborators
EduWiki Outreach Collaborators or EWOC are a dynamic group of Wikimedians working along with the education team at the Wikimedia Foundation. Together we will support education leaders and other stakeholders in our movement with better networking and communication practices for growth.
The project aims to collaborate with the emerging leaders from the Wikimedia education community to use their expertise in communications and Outreach wiki work, while providing them professional experience from the expertise of the education team. The group will be a shared-learning group with a diverse number of participants from different regions of the world, to learn from each other's experiences, challenges and on how to support each other in our work. Commitment towards EWOC is on a volunteer basis, you can use this as an opportunity to work with other Wikimedians to gain experience and learn different skills.
