Join a global edit-a-thon to create more biographies of women in STEM on Wikipedia.

Inspired by English mathematician and pioneer computer programmer Ada Lovelace, a group of volunteers are holding a 24-hour global event to create more biographies of women in STEM on Wikipedia.

Ada Lovelace Day 2021 robot with badge.png

This combined New Zealand and Australia event on 12 August 2021 will go from noon New Zealand time (NZST), then in Australia from 3pm until 8 pm Sydney time AEDT, covering a total of 10 hours of the 24 hour event and then handing off to Wikipedia friends in Asia, Africa, and the UK.

This edit-a-thon is especially for people who want to learn how to edit Wikipedia and create new biographies about women. There will be coaching available for the duration of the event with four sessions run first by a team in Aotearoa and then a team in Australia.

Training sessions for new Wikipedians will be held at 3pm and 6.30pm AEDT. No experience required!

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and mathematics and covers a range of careers from architect through to aeronautical engineer, including chemist, data analyst, epidemiologist, biologist, doctor, food technologist, data analyst and software product designer.

Automated Decision-Making Wikipedia Edit-a-thon 2021-10-26 11:00:00 PM 2021-10-27 2:00:00 AM 11 National

Edit-a-thon hosted by the ARC Centre for Automated Decision Making and Society

The ADM+S Centre aims to promote greater understanding of automated decision-making technologies, applications and impacts and working with Wikipedia, Wikidata and other Wikimedia platforms is one of the best ways to do this. To support this process ADM+S we are running an editathon.

Blurred people walking across yellow lines.jpg

The ARC Centre for Automated Decision Making and Society(ADM+S) is a new, cross-disciplinary, national research centre, which aims to create the knowledge and strategies necessary for responsible, ethical, and inclusive automated decision-making.

One of the aims of the ADM+S Centre is to promote greater understanding of automated decision-making technologies, applications and impacts and working with Wikipedia, Wikidata and other Wikimedia platforms is one of the best ways to do this. To support this process ADM+S has appointed Amanda Lawrence as Wikimedian-in-Residence for 6 months to help with engagement between Wikimedia platforms and the researchers, students, partners, projects and issues associated with the Centre.

To get the ball rolling we are running an edit-a-thon to bring together ADM+S members and other interested people to work on Wikipedia (and Wikidata) content related to automated decision-making systems and their social, legal and ethical implications.

We now have a new Wikipedia page on automated decision-making, however this is just a stub and needs lots more work. We also need to improve pages for content, people and organisations related to the centre's work that are already on Wikipedia and to create new pages as required.

There is already lots of content on Wikipedia about automation, AI etc but some pages don't have much up to date information or could be improved in lots of ways, particularly in terms of social impacts. Citations to quality research sources are also a key issue for Wikipedia content and it is always great to increase pages on women in technology.

The Edit-a-thon will start with an introduction to the work of the Centre and the topic of automated decision making and an introduction to Wikipedia editing. We will then break into groups for those who are new to editing and those who are more advanced to come together and start editing.

More details and lists of suggested pages to work on will be posted on the ADM+S Wikimedia in Residence page.

Please register with Wikipedia before starting the workshop.

Community Meeting - A discussion about the Census and Code of Conduct 2021-10-13 8:00:00 AM 2021-10-13 9:30:00 AM 11 National

Online

Two key conversations about the Census and Wikimedia platforms, and the Universal Code of Conduct

Universal Code of Conduct

A discussion and opportunity to offer feedback on the Enforcement Draft Guidelines of the Universal Code of Conduct, a document that will outline the mechanism, reporting system, division of role, and disbursement of responsibilities within the Wikimedia movement to enforce the UCoC.

Guided by Ramzy Muliawan, Facilitator, Movement Strategy and Governance at the Wikimedia Foundation, the conversation will focus on current and best practices of enforcing similar behavioural policy within the context of Wikimedia volunteers in Australia and Wikimedia Australia.

Census Tools: A discussion

The 2021 Census results will be released next year. This offers massive challenges in terms of updating and maintaining data across Wikimedia platforms. What opportunities might there be for automation or tool development to assist with this process? What needs are there and what might we build together?

Ed Noveras, Project Management Officer, of the 2021 Census Dissemination team and Hugh Stehlik, Digital Service Designer, Dissemination Systems Support and Modernisation from the Bureau of Statistics, will provide and update about the Census and join the discussion.

Join Elena Lappen from the Movement Communications team will be joining our July community meeting to discuss the Wikimedia Foundation’s new annual plan.

How can the Wikimedia Foundation better support the movement in accomplishing objectives and overcoming obstacles? How can it help people in the movement solve problems? What does the movement most want from the Wikimedia Foundation — and how might better communications help?

The Wikimedia Foundation conducted a series of focus groups with participants across communities to explore these questions. They have synthesized the findings into six key recommendations for how the Foundation can better support communities through communications.

Elena Lappen from the Movement Communications team will be joining our July community meeting to discuss the findings and their impact on the Foundation’s new Annual Plan. She will lead a discussion on how to utilise these findings in support of the Australian community and larger regional community.

The six recommendations: meta:Movement communications insights/Report/Introduction

Wikipedia is a free online encyclopedia, it’s the 6th most visited website on the internet. Wikipedia content is created and edited worldwide by volunteer contributors.

It has long been acknowledged that there is a lack of diversity among contributors.

People are meeting up across the world to help remedy the imbalance and bias in the diversity of voices on Wikipedia. The City of Sydney Library has joined this movement, hosting edit-a-thons to increase and improve content relevant to our diverse communities.

Everyone is welcome to join our online edit-a-thon. It will be led by Kirsten Thorpe, Nathan “Mudyi” Sentance, and experienced Wikipedia editors Toby Hudson and Caddie Brain. Kirsten’s professional and research interests relate to Indigenous self-determination in libraries and archives. Nathan works to ensure that the cultural and historical narratives conveyed by memory institutions are being told and controlled by First Nations people. With their help, participants will focus on improving articles of importance to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities on Wikipedia.

No experience is necessary to join the edit-a-thon. Bring your own laptop or tablet and connect to our free wi-fi or use one of our devices. (A limited number of library devices will be available for use at the event).

Participants are encouraged to set up a Wikipedia account prior to the workshop.

Just 18% of biographies on Wikipedia are about women. When it comes to women artists and creators, that number is even lower.

Wikimedia Australia is partnering with the National Gallery of Australia as part of the Know My Name initiative to enhance understanding and appreciation of work by Australian artists who identify as women.

Become part of the Wikipedia community of volunteers who collaboratively create and maintain the world’s largest and most popular research tools. On the weekend of International Women's Day, Wikimedia Australia’s Caddie Brain and the Gallery’s Research Library staff are holding an interactive four-hour workshop where you can learn to edit and make new entries to Wikipedia. You will have the opportunity to create a new page on a selected Australian woman artist.
