Women in Science Workshop and Wiki Edit-a-thon October 2015
14 October 2015 @ 12:50 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Manchester University is hosting a workshop followed by a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon event. Both will be held in the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester. The aim of the half-day event is to celebrate Ada Lovelace who, this year, celebrates 200 years as a computer visionary. We hope to raise awareness of women in science, hear personal stories and help to improve (and increase) the content on Wikipedia’s pages about female scientists.
The workshop speakers will share their stories about their personal journey, current position (and any progression) and experience as a woman in science. Speakers are encouraged to highlight the industry-academic links and share their experience working with (or alongside) industry and how this complements/enhances their career. They will share different skills acquired, future plans/aspirations, advice for others, choices made, challenges faced, hints/tips, support (initiatives/role models who have been supportive), positive changes you have seen for women, how they maintain a work-life balance, etc. Also anything else that would be interesting and relevant to share about their story as a woman in a male-dominated field.
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.
