ABOUT THE EVENT
How can we continue to improve access to information while addressing the “epistemic emergency” raised by the spread of disinformation? Katherine Maher, CEO and Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation, and CGD Policy Fellow Michael Pisa will explore this question and Wikimedia’s evolving role in the information ecosystem. The conversation will focus on how Wikimedia has supported equitable access to information across the globe, as well as lessons from its success for other online platforms.
