Josie Fraser, Senior Technology Adviser on the National Technology Team, based in the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in the UK Government.
Josie will discuss the impact the open knowledge movement has had on education and learning. Looking at the powerful role that Wikimedia UK and Wikimedians have played in bringing UK cultural institutions and their digital collections to new and wider audiences, the talk will also explore how open knowledge partnerships are driving diversity and better representation for all online. She will invite the audience to join her in exploring ideas and opportunities for the future.
