Diversity in science Wikipedia edit-a-thon

Women in science edit-a-thon Women-in-science Wikipedia edit-a-thon at the Royal Society, March 2014

Learn how to edit Wikipedia and create and improve entries on topics relating to diversity in science and technology.  

This event will have a particular focus on diversity in relation to geography, culture, gender, ethnicity and disability.

Both new and experienced editors are welcome - there will be training sessions at 2.15pm and 6.15pm for those new to editing, and experienced editors will be on hand to help.
