About US

Community Toolkit for Greater Diversity (CTGD) is an effort to develop contextual reference material for the purpose of finding, identifying and addressing different inclusivity gaps on Wikipedia and its sister projects. The toolkit comprises learning modules meant for Wikimedia contributors to:

  • identify and address gaps in diversity among Wikimedia contributors.
  • increase the participation of and content pertaining to underrepresented demographics on Wikimedia projects.

As it currently stands, the CTGD contains ten modules in English. It is primarily intended for Wikimedians in or from India and those who have keen interest in creating knowledge in the Indian demographic context. The CTGD covers underrepresented groups in terms of gender, disability, ethnic minority status, indigeneity, and caste.


We hope to expand the scope of the CTGD in the future to more geographic regions and more groupings, such as race and sexuality. We also solicit volunteers and funders to translate the community toolkit into different Indic languages.


The CTGD team realised that there was a serious void of reference and training material for Wikimedians that is:

  1. tailored towards the inclusion of various underrepresented demographics, while incorporating their voices and active participation.
  2. tailored to the South Asian context, in terms of social structure and cultural mores of an economically developing country.
  3. written in one or more Indic languages.

This realisation led us to the idea and motivation behind the CTGD.
