We invite you to our Wikipedia Edit-a-thon to increase the visibility of women scientists and other underrepresented groups in the life sciences and diversify the world's largest encyclopedia.
Only 17.7% of English language biographies and 15.6% of German language biographies in Wikipedia are for women. There is also an underrepresentation of certain ethnicities and people of color in science. Our Diversithon is looking to balance this out, but we need your help!
We invite you, whatever your gender, to join us for exciting BIH Wikepedia Edit-a-thon in Berlin. We all use Wikipedia, so why not help it grow and become more diverse? By participating in our event you can contribute to and improve Wikipedia. Editing scientists’ biographies is an important part of science communication. You can share and expand your knowledge while editing and engage in discussions with other people who are interested in the same topics.
PUBLIC EDIT-A-THON. PLEASE REGISTER.
This is a digital event. If you would like to attend please book your spot here.
