Only 17.7% in English and 15.6% in German biographies on Wikipedia are about women. There is also an underrepresentation of certain ethnicities and people of colour. Since 2019, BIH aims to increase the visibility of women and other under-represented groups in the life science by adding and editing Wikipedia biographies. Our Diversithon reaches to change the balance, and we are looking for your help!
Berlin Diversithon Report briefly describes our vision of Diversithons, what we hope to do and how we want to do it. We plan to organise the Diversithons regularly. More information about the upcoming events will be provided here.
