Event Details

Promoting diversity in science and engineering to celebrate International Women’s Day

This is an afternoon and evening event for people who want to edit Wikipedia, in particular topics relating to women in science and engineering.  New and experienced editors are welcome; there will be training sessions for those new to editing, and experienced helpers will be available. 

There will be a number of suggested topics for editing, but please bring your own thoughts on this.

Please bring a laptop if possible, though some will be available, as will wifi internet access.  Also please bring any books you have to use as references, though the resources of the Royal Society library will be available until shortly before 5pm.

We envisage that most people will come either for the afternoon or the evening, with the changeover around 5.30-6pm,  but there is room for some to span both sessions; there will be light refreshments laid on.  There will be presentations on editing for new editors at about 2.20 and 6.20, lasting about 40 minutes, and there will be experienced editors on hand throughout to give assistance.

The event is slightly in advance of International Women's Day, on Saturday March 8th.

Those unable to attend in person are very welcome to join us online - see the

event page on Wikipedia here for links to a basic editing tutorial and suggested articles.
