Chapters as way to reach under-represented groups
Chapters have the potential to offer a different type of participation that may draw in groups of people that are currently under-represented now. Perhaps females and older people will increase there participation after face to face contact with other people.
- I don't think the source of diversity would necessarily be the chapter membership itself (at least not initially), but I have seen a really far better turnout of under-represented groups in chapter outreach events to the general public (where, for example, the sex ratio among the non-Wikimedians we draw in tends to be 50:50).--Pharos 17:28, 1 February 2010 (UTC)
