GLAM Women: How You Can Help Close the Gender Gap on Wikipedia

A session at MCN 2012

Thursday 8th November, 2012

4:00pm to 4:30pm (PST)

As of 2011, only 9% of editors to Wikipedia are women. How can GLAMs, which are generally women dominated organizations, contribute to the closing of the Wikipedia gendergap by participating and encouraging women's participating in Wikipedia? This session will feature a presentation by Wikimedia Foundation Community Fellow & former Smithosnian Institution Archives Wikipedian in Residence, which will reflect on what women in GLAMs can do, utilizing examples of participation options ranging from offline and online events to editing Wikipedia. Time will be allowed for discussion.
