|description = Save the date for a virtual edit-a-thon on Women in Finance on Thursday, October 29th from 1:00-3:00pm EST where we will highlight women who have been trailblazers in finance, business, and entrepreneurship. The histories of women in these spaces is not well documented online, but they deserve to be told. Dr. Crystal M. Moten, curator of African American history in the division of Work and History at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, will speak about her work and the importance of telling her stories at the edit-a-thon.
This workshop will bring together DIY biologists and makers from across the DC area with experienced Wikipedians. Learn about emerging technologies like synthetic biology, nanotechnology, robotics, and more! Afterwards, we'll teach you how to improve Wikipedia articles on science and engineering topics of your choice.

|description = Join us for a virtual Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon that helps to highlight more artists and stories like those featured in the Smithsonian American Art Museum's landmark exhibition ¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics, 1965 to Now. The exhibition brings together five decades of innovative printmaking by Chicano artists to explore the social justice-rooted artistic tradition and its contemporary legacy. Many of the featured artists came of age during the civil rights era and channeled the period's social activism into assertive aesthetic statements that announced a new political and cultural consciousness among people of Mexican descent in the United States. Learn how to edit and create new Wikipedia articles in this online editing workshop and work to amplify and expand on articles about Chicanx women and LGBTQ+ artists. All levels of technological proficiency welcome.
This event is free and open to the public. Dinner will be provided.

While Wikipedia is the fifth most popular website in the world, notching up more than 32 million views a day, less than 18% of its English-language biographies are about women. So in honor of Ada Lovelace—and her contributions to mathematics and computing—we'll work to add more entries to Wikipedia and give you the tools to keep making the Internet less sexist after our Wiki-thon. All you have to do is come armed with a laptop or tablet!

|description = The Black in STEM Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon is a joint project between the nonprofit BlackComputeHER.org and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. BlackComputeHER.org is dedicated to supporting computer and tech education along with workforce development for African American girls and women. The National Museum of African American History and Culture recognizes that African Americans have contributed to the United States’ Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) enterprise since the nation’s beginning, yet their names and contributions have been routinely overlooked.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service (USDA ARS), The National Archives, and Wikimedia DC invite Wikipedians of all levels of experience to participate in this historical research Edit-a-thon. Topics will include USDA research discoveries and developments, the progression and advancement of USDA research centers, the evolution of technology development for agricultural research, and highlights of notable research contributions.
 
   
  +
Over the course of two weeks, the Black in STEM Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon will be used to highlight African Americans STEM professionals, specifically, engineers, computer scientists and women in STEM throughout history. We look forward to creating and building information resources for all people interested in African American history and STEM.
During the event, participants will have the opportunity to hear from and meet with influential historians within USDA, librarians, and data science experts. They will also learn more about resources available through ARS and its National Agricultural Library.

|description = The Black in STEM Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon is a joint project between the nonprofit BlackComputeHER.org and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. BlackComputeHER.org is dedicated to supporting computer and tech education along with workforce development for African American girls and women. The National Museum of African American History and Culture recognizes that African Americans have contributed to the United States’ Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) enterprise since the nation’s beginning, yet their names and contributions have been routinely overlooked.
With the help of experienced Wikipedians, attendees will learn to edit Wikipedia and improve articles on historic sites, people, and institutions in and around Cleveland Park.
 
   
  +
Over the course of two weeks, the Black in STEM Wikipedia Edit-A-Thon will be used to highlight African Americans STEM professionals, specifically, engineers, computer scientists and women in STEM throughout history. We look forward to creating and building information resources for all people interested in African American history and STEM.
Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing info@wikimediadc.org. Lunch will be provided.

|description = The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), enacted by Congress in 2011, is a comprehensive update of federal food safety laws. It addresses preventable foodborne illness, monitors the global food supply chain, and ensures human and animal food safety. Rather than a system that responds to foodborne illness, FSMA works to prevent it. Following its enactment, the FDA created seven comprehensive new regulations to enforce the law. These regulations touch on nearly every aspect of the food supply chain.

Following the speakers, we will hold a training session for those new to - or need a refresher on - Wikipedia editing. A worklist of FSMA topics and pages will be provided, including growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce; mandatory controls for food facilities; and monitoring and corrective action of intentional adulteration of food.

Anyone and everyone interested in learning how to edit Wikipedia, regardless of experience or background, is welcome to virtually attend. Wikimedia DC will provide training for new editors during the first hour. Experienced editors can start editing right away. All attendees will learn about citable secondary sources that can used to create and enhance entries relating to Home Rule and DC Statehood on the world's largest reference website.
This Wikipedia Edit-a-thon accompanies the exhibition, In the Library: The Evans-Tibbs Archive of African American Art, which showcases the life and work of Thurlow Evans Tibbs Jr., an accomplished art appraiser, broker, collector, and dealer, as well as the founder and director of his eponymous art gallery in Washington, DC. Tibbs is best known for his donation to the Corcoran Gallery of Art, now an important part of the National Gallery’s holdings by African American artists. To support his research, Tibbs amassed approximately more than a thousand reference files comprising more than seventy boxes of material documenting art of the African diaspora. Tibbs opened up his reference collection, now commonly known as the Evans-Tibbs Archive, to artists, students, and scholars. The archive includes correspondence, exhibition pamphlets, gallery records, photographs, and other ephemera that illustrate the history of the Tibbs family, The Evans-Tibbs Collection, and African American art.

|description = Wikipedia is an important resource for up-to-date, accurate vaccine information, and it is currently one of the most frequently visited sites for healthcare information worldwide. NewsQ’s KNoW Science initiative has partnered with Wikimedia DC and Wikimedia Mexico to help expand Wikipedia’s existing vaccine-related content in Spanish and English
   
  +
As a part of these efforts KNoW Science and Wikimedia DC are organizing a Wikipedia edit-a-thon to evaluate and improve Wikimedia content about vaccines, including vaccine safety.
Learn how to become a Wikipedia editor and spend time contributing to articles on Women's History and Baltimore industry with guidance from experts. No experience necessary.
 
   
  +
The event will be open to anyone interested in promoting accurate vaccine information online. Training will be provided -- so no experience is necessary to join the event!

|description = The stories of Black women in food can educate and embolden future generations, but only if their legacies are discoverable. On July 27 from 1:00-3:30 p.m. Eastern, join us for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon that will address the marginalization and omission of Black women’s stories by creating or adding to Wikipedia articles about their personal histories and inspiring careers in food businesses, culinary education, writing, advocacy, philanthropy, and beyond.
  +
  +
Don’t know how to edit Wikipedia articles? No worries, we’ll train you during the event! With these new skills, you’ll be able to help us better represent and share the stories of women like LaDeva Davis (featured above) who had her own program on PBS in 1976 called, “What’s Cooking?” During the show, she prepared budget-friendly, highly nutritious meals that appealed to wide audiences. So popular was her show that PBS broadcast it in over 100 locations across the country, making Davis one of the first Black women to have her own nationally syndicated public TV cooking show on PBS.
  +
  +
Honoring her role in food TV history, the museum included Davis’ image on the “TV Chefs Wall” in the FOOD: Transforming the American Table exhibition.
