Thursday, March 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST
Hear from Katherine Maher, 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.
