Celebrate Women and non-binary people in STEM through a Wikipedia edit-a-thon!
Did you know only 19% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women? Research has shown Women in STEM are particularly underrepresented compared to male counterparts. Time to take some action! Join us for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to create profiles on Wikipedia to highlight the achievements of women and non-binary people in STEM and help reduce the bias in content online.
The event will also feature a Q&A panel featuring:
- Erica Hediger: Founder and CEO of the Creative Element
- Prof. Tanya Monro: Australia's Chief Defence Scientist
- A/Prof. Alice Motion: Westpac Research Fellow and Deputy Director for SydneyNano (Academic Development and External Engagement)
Edit-a-thon: 11:45am - 3:30pm
Panel: 3:45pm - 5pm followed by networking
