Closing the Gaps: A Wikipedia Edit-a-thon for Diversity and Inclusion

Tuesday, January 15, 2019 at 11:00am to 2:00pm

This is a past event.

Doheny Memorial Library (DML)

Wikipedia’s content and contributors remain sorely unrepresentative of the world’s diversity. Drop in throughout this event to contribute information to fill this gap. Speakers will frame our activities by talking about historical and algorithmic biases in information systems. All skill levels welcome! We’ll provide editing tutorials, reference materials, and topics.

Location: DML 241

Open to: Faculty, staff, students and alumni

Capacity: 10 people per hour period
