Cornell and Ithaca community members,
Join us at this edit-a-thon to honor and highlight under-recognized women in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and related fields!
We want to make Wikipedia a more inclusive space. While Wikipedia is the fifth most popular website in the world, reaching up to 32 million views a day, less than 18% of its English-language biographies are about women.
There’s no better time to do it than on Ada Lovelace Day, an international celebration of the contributions of self-identifying women in STEM.
No prior Wikipedia editing experience is necessary and we’ll provide training from 5:00 - 5:30PM.
Find additional editing information on our event page from last year.
Ada Lovelace Day is an international celebration of women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Our Edit-a-thon aims to increase the representation of women in STEM in Wikipedia and promote these role models.
