Wikimedia UK's Partnership of the Year 2022

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)


The UK Wikimedian of the Year Awards recognise the work of community members and partner organisations in sharing open knowledge. For six years, the Women's Classical Committee have been working to improve Wikipedia's coverage of women in the classics. They created the #WCCWiki initiative, with classicists meeting regularly to close Wikipedia's gender gap in their field. The group have organised training events, have widely shared their work to encourage other to participate, and shared their experience with their peers. Collectively, they have transformed Wikipedia's coverage of classicists and are an outstanding example of how sustained work with a community can create change on Wikipedia.
