Diversity in science Wikipedia 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.
Find out more from the Royal Society about diversity in the scientific workforce.
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.
There will be a number of suggested topics for editing, but you are welcome to bring your own ideas.
Please bring a laptop if possible, though some will be available. There will be wifi internet access.
Also, please bring any books you need to use as references, and the resources of the Royal Society library will be available until shortly before 5pm.
