WIKIPEDIA EDIT-A-THON TO PROMOTE GENDER EQUITY IN OCEAN SCIENCE

(This workshop is part of the Ocean Sciences Meeting)

Date: February 18, 2024 | 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Location: New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, Room 224 - Second Floor

Description: Women and non-binary persons are under-represented in ocean science, and their accomplishments are even less represented in both print and online media. A continued effort to ensure diversity and gender inclusiveness in ocean science is essential to unlock more and equitable opportunities. This Wikipedia Edit-a-thon aims to empower volunteers who want to contribute to promoting the stories of accomplishments of women and non-binary individuals in ocean science by increasing their online presence. 

As a participant, you will receive training in Wikipedia editing and then asked to edit, add, or translate Wikipedia entries for women and non-binary individuals in ocean science. The event will also feature special guest speakers who will share inspiring stories about their careers in ocean science. 

Hosts: Marine Technology Society (MTS) and Schmidt Ocean Institute
