Systemic bias is the inherent tendency of a process to favour particular outcomes.


  • Always consider the context of any edits.
  • Be more conscious of your own biases in the course of normal editing. Look at the articles you work on usually and think about whether they are written from an international perspective. If not, you might be able to learn a lot about a subject you thought you knew by adding content with a different perspective.
  • If you are multilingual, add information from Wikipedia articles in other languages to their English Wikipedia counterparts.
