Content and data for action in Africa: A bootcamp for Wikimedians
The Web Foundation and Wikimedia Foundation are planning a "bootcamp"-like event training course for Wikimedians in Africa, which aims to promote more effective gender-responsive data policies that range from local level initiatives to national policy actions — where policies, programs and budgets in countries contribute to the effective implementation of commitments towards women’s empowerment and gender equality in targeted sectors.

To close the digital gender gap, it is critical that digital equality, women’s rights, and digital rights advocates are able to present decision-makers in governments and companies with clear, evidence-based policy recommendations, and to monitor progress towards implementation and impact.

The purpose of this survey is to help conference organizers plan an event for Africa. Over a three-day period, participants will have time to learn, share and build their skills on gender-responsive policy, critical data literacy, and privacy and online safety.

Day 1: Learning about gender-responsive policies
Day 2: Unpacking data literacy and open data
Day 3: Practical training: Personal data protection and online safety workshops

We have some really helpful information, but we want to make it fit with your contexts and give you time to explore how these ideas can be implemented. Your responses will help organizers understand what level of demand there is for the event (how many people in your community think it is important that the event happens) and begin to get consensus on what topics are important to this community.
