On Monday 25th November 2013, the Laboratory of Molecular Biology (LMB) will be hosting a Women in Science Wikipedia Edit-a-thon in Cambridge – the latest in a series of such events to celebrate the MRC ’s Centenary.

  • Would you like to learn how to edit Wikipedia?
  • Would you like to help improve the Wikipedia articles of your scientific heroines?
  • Would you like to join the debate on women’s experiences in science and how under-representation of women can be tackled?

If so, this is the event for you!

There are 20 places available at the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon workshop (10.30 am – 6.00 pm) where participants will be taught how to edit Wikipedia and will have access to resources from the MRC , the Royal Society, the Wellcome Collection and the LMB in order to create and improve articles about MRC -funded and other female scientists. The workshop is open to people who are new to Wikipedia as well as experienced Wikipedia editors.

There are 200 places available for the Women in Science panel discussion (1.00 – 2.30 pm), led by Mariann Bienz FRS from the LMB and Nicola Hannam from the Science Council. Come along to discuss how women can be better represented in science and hear how eminent female scientists’ careers have flourished.

Tea and cake will be served after the discussion.

Attendance is free, but booking through EventBrite is essential:
