We are joining Digital Science and other hubs worldwide to participate in a Wiki edit-a-thon: Improving diversity on Wikipedia on Monday, October 8, from 11am-1pm. This will be a communal wiki update to improve the coverage of women and diversity on Wikipedia. In 2011 only 10% of wiki contributors were female, and in 2018 only 17% of entries are about women. Please join us and help change that! 

The event will be held in the new Shuster Lab in the Gordon Library, first floor. Computers are available, but please bring your laptops if you can. Anyone can participate! Novices are very welcome, and we will provide training and support. This is a drop-in event, so please feel free to come and stay as long as you like! 

For this event, we plan to use the WikiProject Women Scientists as a guide. If you do not have a Wikipedia account, please create one before the event.
