Hi all,

With the start of the new fiscal year in Wikimedia Foundation on July
1, the Research team has officially started the work on Program 12:
Growing contributor diversity. [1] Here are a few
announcements/pointers about this program and the research and work
that will be going to it:

* We aim to keep the research documentation for this project on the
corresponding research page on meta. [2]
* Research tasks are hard to break down and track in task-tracking
systems. This being said, any task that we can break down and track
will be documented under the corresponding Epic task on Phabricator.
* The goals for this Program for July-September 2017 (Quarter 1) are
captured on MediaWiki. [4] (The Phabricator epic will be updated with
corresponding tasks as we start working on them.)
* Our three formal collaborators (cc-ed) will contribute to this
program: Jérôme Hergueux from ETH, Paul Seabright from TSE, and Bob
West from EPFL. We are thankful to these people who have agreed to
spend their time and expertise on this project in the coming year, and
to those of you who have already worked with us as we were shaping the
proposal for this project and are planning to continue your
contributions to this program. :)
* I act as the point of contact for this research in Wikimedia
Foundation. Please feel free to reach out to me (directly, if it
cannot be shared publicly) if you have comments/questions about the
project in the coming year.
