We are hosting a Wiki Edit-a-Thon to improve Wikipedia coverage of women and diversity on Ada Lovelace Day.
We have joined forces with Digital Science and Finding Ada to host a communal wiki update on 9 October 2018 to improve the coverage of women and diversity 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!
Join hubs worldwide on the 8-9 October 2018 for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to women and diversity in science, technology, art, business and more.
All you need is a laptop or tablet to upload the information as directed by the onsite ‘Wiki Editor’.
Or send us your ideas and/or log on from home!
