Women, trans, two-spirit and non-binary researchers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) regularly suffer from gender-based harassment and exclusion, a phenomenon that is reflected in their under-representation on Wikipedia.
University of Waterloo Library is hosting a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to help counter this trend. Please join us in creating and improving Wikipedia pages that highlight the work of women, trans, two-spirit and non-binary researchers in STEM fields.
First-time and experienced editors welcome!
Free pizza and refreshments will be provided.
