About this event

How do institutions reproduce (and potentially create) structures of power? How does Wikipedia itself engage these biases? Many people don't know this, but approximately 90% of Wikipedia contributors identify as men. There are almost no statistics on race. This event is dedicated to promoting inclusivity and awareness by giving you the tools, time, and space to be active producers of knowledge. 

 

Potential articles to edit:

 
Colleges, race, gender and admissions
