The Global Women's Network is possible do to the organizations and users who add and edit organizational information. We call these volunteers: wiki-activists.


How can I edit a page?

It's easy! Any person and any organization can add or edit an organizational page. You can do so anonymously without a user account by either clicking on the add or edit with form buttons. While you can make edits anonymously we encourage you to register on the site by creating a user page. This will allow you to track your contributions, earn points and rankings for these contributions, and interact with other wiki-activists.

Why should I become a wiki-activist? Why is my contribution important?

The Global Women's Network is only as broad, dynamic, and current as our users are. By becoming a wiki-activist you will be contributing to the largest collaborative information source on women's and girls' organizations around the world. Whether it be by adding one organizational profile, or by editing and updating 10 organizational profiles, your contributions are essential to our success. The more organizations we feature the more opportunities there are for organizations to share and partner with each other and the more resources there are to allow people to search and access organizations who provide services they need. In the process of becoming a wiki-activist, you'll not only be educating yourself on these organizations and the sectors that they work in as you make their organizational profiles, but you will also be gaining valuable information communication technology skills while you become familiar with the editing process.
