Wiki Edit-A-Thon: Women and Diversity in Science
8 October 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join our communal update on 8 Oct from 5-9pm to improve the coverage of women and diversity in science on Wikipedia!
Wikipedia is the first to admit that they have some big gender and diversity gaps. In 2011 only 10% of wiki contributors were female and in 2018 only 17% of entries are about women. Let’s help change that!
We’re looking for both experienced editors plus those with no past experience (but a lot of enthusiasm for writing and/or fact-checking!). Anyone can participate!
We’re super excited to have the fabulous Dr. Jess Wade joining us as our lead editor (she’s been running her own one-woman mission to get women the recognition they deserve on Wikipedia).
We’ll be working through the backlog of Wikipedia pages to help improve the coverage of women and diversity in science on Wikipedia.
Join us remotely or in person at our offices in Kings Cross, London, where you can drop in at any time between 5-9pm on Monday 8 October (the following day happens to be the fabulous Ada Lovelace Day Live).
We’ll have snacks on hand to feed those brains!
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.
