Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon: Women in Technology (Round 2!)
NOTE: This event is free and open to the public. While WiT is specifically focusing on Wikipedia content about women in technology, non-WiT members are welcome to come, pick up some skills, and add / improve whatever content they like ❤️. Read a story from the Cap Times about our first Edit-a-Thon: -------------------------------------------- Women in technology are underrepresented on Wikipedia - by a LOT. The category "computer programmers", for example, lists pages for about 180 people ... of whom fewer than 10 are women. Part of the reason for this disparity is because about 90% of Wikipedia contributors are men. Let's change that! Never edited wikipedia before? No idea where to start or what to do? No problem - we've got you covered. Attendees will view a tutorial on how to contribute to Wikipedia, and we'll have several experienced editors on-hand to answer questions and help with trouble-shooting. WHAT CAN I DO? No experience is required! There are a ton of ways you can participate as an individual or partnering with a friend or fellow WiT member, including: • Write new articles (we'll have a list of suggestions available) • Help with research (we'll have pre-selected library books on-hand) • Fact-check existing articles • Add citations to existing articles • Expand existing articles • And more! DO I NEED TO BE THERE RIGHT AT 9 AM? Nope! Come anytime between 9am and noon. WHAT SHOULD I BRING? We recommend bringing a laptop if you have one, but the library is also providing some for us to use, so don't let that stop you! IMPORTANT TO NOTE: The library is fully accessible; there's nearby parking garages or street parking. Kids are 100% welcome :) A huge thanks to Madison Public Library for their help making this event possible!

What we're about

Public Group

Madison Women in Tech is a supportive community of women and gender nonbinary folks working or interested in technology, from designers to coders to recruiters to technicians. Through regular events and a digital newsletter, we empower and elevate women working in Madison’s tech scene.

Follow us on Twitter at @Madison_WiT ( and sign up for our semi-monthly newsletter via , featuring community events, WiT news, volunteer opportunities and job openings.


This is a group by and for women gender nb folks; our events cater to them and are a safe space for them; generally, we ask that men not attend unless they are the guest of a woman or gender nb person attending.


Likewise, we are a child-friendly community; even when we're not set up for it specifically (which we try to do as often as possible), you're surrounded by members who understand the pressures you face as a professional parent, and would never discourage you from bringing your children to one of our events. Maybe they'll grow up to become a person in tech themselves!
