Wiki-a-thon for BIPOC Engineers and Scientists

Event Date/Time
November 8, 2023, 1:00pm
Event Location
Jack Baskin Engineering B2 180


Join us for an afternoon of creating and editing pages for BIPOC engineers, scientists, and technologists! Bring your laptop and a friend and enjoy some pizza while making a difference!

Wikipedia overwhelmingly recognizes the achievements of white people. This wiki-a-thon works to reverse this trend, highlighting the often overlooked accomplishments of BIPOC leaders in science and technology, and ensuring that the next generation can see role models who look like them.

NO EXPERIENCE NECESARY - We will provide a list of scientists who don't yet have pages, as well as training on how to contribute to Wikipedia. 

Hosted by the UC Santa Cruz Genomics Institute and the Jack Baskin School of Engineering. All are welcome!
