As part of the ongoing work in developing a Universal Code of Conduct for the Wikimedia movement, I sat down with volunteers and staff from across the movement to learn more about their hopes and thoughts regarding the UCoC. This is the second in a limited series of interviews that will be published here on Diff.
In this interview I spoke to Amber Berson, one of the Lead Co-Organizers for Art+Feminism. She spends a lot of time and energy in training new editors and working on policy, but also edits articles related to women in the arts herself. She developed the Safety tab at the Art+Feminism website. Amber generally enjoys working on knowledge equity projects and this is why she contributes to the Wikimedia projects.
In the video below I spoke to Amber about how she became aware of the UCoC, the impact she believes it will have on the different communities she and her colleagues work with, and what changes she expects the UCoC will have on a broader scale.
