Wikimedia is a proud participant of Outreachy (was FOSS Outreach Program for Women until 2014), a program that runs two editions every year. In this program we connect people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software with possible projects and possible mentors in a three-month, full-time internship.

Learn more about our motivation and goals to run this program: FLOSS internship programs as catalysts for richer community collaboration.

This Wikimedia Engineering activity is part of Mentorship programs.

Goals[edit | edit source]

The MediaWiki community is participating in this initiative because we aim to:

  • Make strong connections with a few talented people who will stick around
  • Encourage people to work on testing, design, documentation, marketing, and other areas as well as code
  • Increase the number and proportion of women in an open source community
  • Promote age diversity as well
  • Follow broader charters with interns and flex to accommodate their interests and abilities
