We are pleased to announce a new sponsor for WikiSym 2011, the 7th International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration.
Creative Commons will join us this year as a WikiSym “Associate” sponsor, focusing on Open Educational Resources and open content, both important topics of interest to our conference.
Creative Commons is a non-profit organization based in San Francisco (California) that develops, supports, and stewards legal and technical infrastructure that maximizes digital creativity, sharing, and innovation worldwide. Our partnership will help us disseminate our shared interests to a broader, global audience.
We are also preparing joint initiatives that we hope you will enjoy in our exciting march towards WikiSym 2011, October 3-5. We will announce these initiatives as we move along. Creative commons lends us their network to publish important news about WikiSym.
Make sure to keep an eye on this blog and our Twitter account (@wikisym) to hear about them first!

I will look at the inclusion of equity in this conference. As an “unofficial” inclusion advocate, I see the potential for communal growth and empowerment of everyone. I will look at the mission statements and goals once the initiatives are released. As a female, single parent, person of color flowing through 4 cultures, there is much work to be done as far as inclusion and equity.
