UNI Edits Wikipedia: Women & LGBT+ Edit-a-thon

UNI Edits Wikipedia: Women & LGBT+ Edit-a-thon

Friday, March 8, 2019 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Wikipedia's diversity problems are well documented. Due to a lack of diversity among Wikipedia's editorship, there are critical gaps in the information available on the free encyclopedia. We're here to fix it. This edit-a-thon will focus on adding information about women and folks in the LGBT+ community from around the world to Wikipedia. All computer skill levels are welcome. We recommend attendees create a unique Wikipedia account before the edit-a-thon, but help will be provided at the event to create an account if needed. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, reference materials, childcare, and refreshments. Bring your laptop, power cord, (we will have some laptops available) and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions, races and ethnicities are invited to participate.
