Details

Join Girl Develop It in improving the representation of women on Wikipedia!

Women make up no more than 15% of Wikipedia’s editors, and the entries on Wikipedia don’t fully represent the wide-ranging contributions and accomplishments of women. Learn everything you need to know to get started creating and improving pages on Wikipedia, so that we can all help make Wikipedia a more equitable and accurate resource.

No experience necessary! Bring your laptop and a few ideas for women (technical or not) whose pages you’d like to create or improve. We’ll spend about 30 minutes giving a bit of an overview of the editing process and tools, and then have plenty of time to dive in and do some editing ourselves.

QUESTIONS?

We're here to help! If you have additional questions or would like to talk further before signing up for an event, please contact Cara Jo Miller, or Bree Thomas at [masked]
