Edit for Equity: STEM
9 October 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Wikipedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of contributors were women.*
Let’s change that.
To coincide with this year’s Suffrage 125 celebrations and with Ada Lovelace day, we invite you to Edit for Equity: STEM, a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to increase the online presence of women and non-binary New Zealanders in science, technology, engineering, and maths. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to participate.
First-timers and experienced editors alike are welcome. The event is free, and training, resources, and snacks will be provided.
Register soon, as space is limited: https://edit-for-equity.eventbrite.com

Edit for Equity is proudly supported by Ministry for Women’s Suffrage 125 Community Fund.
*the survey did not note the percentage of trans and non-binary contributors, but it’s fair to assume the number is low.
If you have any questions about the Ada Lovelace Day events calendar, or have any other problems, please email us. Please note that you CANNOT add an event without registering for an account or logging in FIRST.
