Knowledge diversity

Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects, like Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata, are some of the world’s most read and used websites for the free sharing of knowledge. The Wikimedia projects are made from contributions by hundreds of thousands of volunteers all over the world. However, several groups are underrepresented amongst the contributors, and their knowledge and perspectives are missing. Wikimedia Norge is working to reduce this imbalance. Please get in touch with us if you have ideas for collaborations about increased diversity amongst the Wikimedia contributors, or about more diversity in the Wikimedia projects’ content.
