Wikipedia: How Volunteers Build the World's Knowledge
Thursday, March 9, 2017
7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hear from Katherine Maher, the chief executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation, about how a community of volunteers from around the globe built- and operates- one of the world's most popular websites.
Roughly a billion people visit Wikipedia every month, seeking knowledge in nearly 300 languages. The Wikimedia Foundation operates Wikipedia and Wikimedia's other free knowledge projects and offers support to a global community of 80,000 volunteers and 100 affiliate organizations around the world.
The Wikimedia Foundation is the non-profit organization behind Wikipedia, one of the world's most beloved websites. Our vision is a world in which every single human can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
