BIH Diversithon | Nov 10, 3-7 pm
Our Diversithon is an online edit-a-thon with the aim to increase the visibility of women scientists and other underrepresented groups in the life sciences.
We all use Wikipedia, so why not help it grow and become more diverse? By participating in our event, you can contribute to and improve Wikipedia. It is easy to learn and can be done from wherever you are located.
Did you know that only 17.7% of English language biographies and 15.6% of German language biographies in Wikipedia are for women? There is also an underrepresentation of certain ethnicities and people of colour in science. Our Diversithon is looking to balance it out and you can contribute.
