Only 17.7% of English language biographies and 15.6% of German language biographies in Wikipedia are for women. There is also an underrepresentation of certain ethnicities and people of colour in science. Our Diversithon is looking to balance it out, but we need your help!

We invite you, whatever your gender, to join us for an exciting Wikepedia edit-a-thon in Berlin.

We all use Wikipedia, so why not help it grow and become more diverse? By participating in our event, you can contribute to and improve Wikipedia. Editing scientists’ biographies is an important part of science communication. You can share and expand your knowledge while editing, engage in discussions with other people who are interested in same topics as you and spend an inspiring afternoon with colleagues.

See the Wikipedia page of the event for more information
