LGBTQ+ STEM Day Wikithon
We celebrated LGBTQ+STEM Day on Wednesday 18th November with a live introduction to Wikipedia editing. Hosted by Dr Rebecca O’Neill from Wikimedia Community Ireland, this one-hour live-stream is a beginner’s guide to editing Wikipedia, and to improving ‘LGBTQ+ in STEM’ representation on the platform. You can still take part, and watch a recording of the stream here. To take part, you’ll need to set up a Wikipedia account, and you’ll need this link to the LGBTQ+STEM Day project page. This session had live captioning and an Irish Sign Language (ISL) interpreter.
