You don’t need experience editing Wikipedia pages. Just show up with your curiosity and a laptop. We’ll walk you through the rest. This is a great opportunity to contribute and learn while connecting to a community with a shared interest in raising the visibility of women in academia.

The wikithon is a recipient of a Women’s Center Gender Equity Grant. A collaboration between the College of Science and Engineering; College of Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences; College of Biological Sciences; BioTechnology Institute; the Digital Arts, Sciences and Humanities (DASH) Program at the University of Minnesota; Women in Science and Engineering (WISE); and University Libraries.
