On Friday, July 20, 2018, Fembot travels to Ms. Magazine's offices in Beverly Hills for an edit-a-thon to help train interns and continue to engage more women, people of color, and members of LGBTQIA communities to edit Wikipedia and to enhance diversity of content.
- Date: Friday, July 20 2018
- Time: Training from 10:00-11:00 AM, general editing 11 AM-4 PM each day: (Presentation: Wikipedia: The Basics v2 by Sarah Stierch)
- Venue: Ms. Magazine, 433 S Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills, CA
- Cost: Free, of course!
- Twitter hashtag: #fembot2018 and/or #fembotcoll and/or #adagender
- Participants: This event is open to anyone interested in improving women's history coverage on Wikipedia. No wiki editing experience is necessary, support will be on hand to help you out! Can't be there the whole time? No problem, join us as long or as little as you can.
- Details: Participants should bring their own laptop and power cords.
This Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon will contribute to the world of free and accessible knowledge, while at the same time working toward an anti-racist, gender inclusive history of everything within Wikipedia’s vast database.
At the Edit-a-Thon, we will be training people:
- to navigate the content production system in Wikipedia
- to make effective and engaging entries
- to conduct research that will meet Wikipedia’s notability criteria
- improve on existing content with more robust citations, data, categories, infoboxes, etc.
People can participate in a number of different ways: participants can come with their own projects or join teams that will be working on projects at the event; projects may involve identifying historical figures, organizations, and ideas that are missing from the online encyclopedia, researching entries, writing entries, locating images and getting permission to use them.
Join us as we ensure the digital legacy of women of color, trans, and/or gender non-conforming people, organizations, and ideas in multiple disciplines, fields, and periods of history!
