|description = '''This event is presented by 500 Women Scientists DC'''. Ada Lovelace Day is an international day to celebrate the contributions of self-identifying women to science, technology, engineering, and math. So to celebrate their achievements, 500 Women Scientists and our allies, as well as the DC Science Writer's Association, are gathering at the West End DC Public Library on Saturday, October 13th to share their work on Wikipedia's pages.

|description = Join the American Archive of Public Broadcasting (AAPB) for a series of virtual Wikipedia Edit-a-thons to help strengthen the quality of the world's largest online encyclopedia and improve the searchability of historic public radio and television collections in the AAPB.

Each meet up covers basic editing conventions and will work though a pre-selected list of content in the AAPB.
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 = 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.
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.

During this training, attendees of all experience levels will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia by updating articles related to the history of women in finance and business in the United States. Ariel Cetrone, Wikimedia DC, will lead the Wikipedia tutorial and beginners are welcome. Zoom link will be sent upon registration.
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 = 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.
No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary. Training will be provided.

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.
 
 
No Wikipedia editing experience is necessary; training will be provided. Reference materials from the library’s collection and the Evans-Tibbs Archive will be readily available.
 
 
Lunch will be provided. If you have dietary restrictions, please email library@nga.gov.
 
 
Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.

|description = Wikimedia’s gender trouble is well-documented. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity, however, is not. Content is skewed by the lack of female participation. This represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.

|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.
Let’s change that. Join us for a communal updating of Wikipedia entries on subjects related to art and feminism. We will provide tutorials for the beginner Wikipedian, as well as reference materials, coffee and lunch. Bring your laptop, power cord and ideas for entries that need updating or creation. People of all gender identities and expressions are invited to participate.
 
   
  +
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.
This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.

|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.
|description = Join us for the Women in Natural History Wikipedia Editing Workshop hosted by the Biodiversity Heritage Library and Smithsonian Libraries with support from Wikimedia DC.
 
   
  +
We will start the day with remarks from Paul Wester, Director of the National Agricultural Library, and follow with a panel of guests who will speak about the history, context, and future of FSMA. 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.
With the help of experienced Wikipedians, attendees will learn to edit Wikipedia and improve or create Wikipedia articles related to women in natural history, drawing on the Biodiversity Heritage Library's free and extensive online collections as source materials. No editing experience is necessary.

To close the day, we will hold a question and answer session.

  +
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 the WHO’s Vaccine Safety Net and Wikimedia DC to help expand Wikipedia’s existing vaccine-related content.
During this training, attendees will learn the basics of how to edit Wikipedia by updating articles related to the history of women's suffrage in the United States in connection with the Votes for Women: A Portrait of Persistence exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery. Votes for Women examines the women and organizations often overlooked in the American women’s suffrage movement and there will be resources on hand to add as citations. Beginners are very welcome and a range of Wikipedia editing techniques will be taught, with Wikimedia DC members on hand to help!
 
   
  +
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.
This is the first edit-a-thon in a series planned in conjunction with the Smithsonian American Women's Initiative, a multiyear undertaking to document, research, collect, display, and share the history of women in the United States.

|description = Asian Pacific American people, places, and events that shaped our world have gone under- and unrepresented in the historical record. This APA History Month, join archivists, historians, and the public for a Wikipedia edit-a-thon where we will edit and improve Wikipedia content related to Asian Pacific America using source material from the National Archives.
 
 
New to Wikipedia? Don't worry - Training and lunch will be provided. Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.
 
   
  +
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.
The APA edit-a-thon will be held in the Innovation Hub at the National Archives Research Center, 700 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20408. Please bring a picture ID and enter the building at the Pennsylvania Avenue entrance.
 
   
  +
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.

|description = A healthy democracy requires that the public can reference a complete, trustworthy, and accessible historical record of events related to government activity and interactions between government officials and the people from whom they derive their authority. Beyond equipping people with the tools to better understand how various economic, social, and cultural dynamics influence our democratic infrastructure, history also provides clarity about various players within our political landscape and the impact they have had.
   
  +
The period between 2017 and 2021 was tumultuous, and recent enough that its documentation on Wikipedia is incomplete. Given Wikipedia’s importance as one of the rare places where the American public can meet to both write and read a shared reality, Protect Democracy and Wikimedia DC are organizing a series of Edit-a-Thons centered on civic engagement and historical documentation. By recording the notable impact actors have had on the U.S.’s democracy and making it easily accessible, you can help empower the public with information of important past events, creating both a recognition of positive influence and accountability for misdeeds.
|description = Join us in the Hispanic Reading Room at the Library of Congress on October 5 from 10:00AM-1:00PM to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. During this event, we will improve and create Wikipedia articles related to Hispanic Heritage. This Wikipedia Edit-a-thon includes training for first time editors and lunch.
 
   
  +
This first event of our series will focus on instances of actors misleading and obstructing the courts and Congress. During this Edit-a-Thon, training as well as suggested sources will be provided so that attendees of all experience levels—both in terms of Wikipedia editing and U.S. democracy—can participate.
Laptops are required. Please bring your own. Wikimedia DC has two laptops to loan. Reserve one by emailing info@wikimediadc.org.
