Behind Wikipedia and other well-loved free knowledge projects, there are hundreds of thousands of Wikimedia movement volunteers who work tirelessly to ensure the sum of all human knowledge is included. These collaborators edit articles, upload media, organize and engage others, all while building the largest free knowledge resource in human history. For some of these volunteers, collaborating also means an opportunity to close knowledge gaps derived from human biases that affect not only Wikimedia projects, but information as a whole.
