Wikipedia Workshop

Join GWIS Research Triangle chapter member Beth Knight and her colleague Mary D’Rozario on Monday April 24, 2017 at 6 pm at the UNC Health Sciences Library (Rm 527) for an interactive workshop on using and editing Wikipedia pages. The workshop will provide instruction in creating an account, creating a page and editing a page. If interested, you can bring your own computer and practice editing with the help of our workshop leaders.

Women are underrepresented in Wikipedia posts, including in the science field, which is partially due to the fact that women are underrepresented as editors of Wikipedia. As Wikipedia is a major information source, the goal of this workshop is to provide the encouragement and the tools needed to empower female scientists to use this platform to increase the awareness of women’s impact in science and society.

Sign up to participate here! Please sign up by Monday April 17! No previous Wikipedia editing experience is required!
