On-site is Minister for Enterprise and Innovation Mikael Damberg, Vice President of Chalmers Anna Dubois and a representative from Wikimedia Sweden.</p>​<img src="/SiteCollectionImages/Forskning/Main-logo-1-300x200.jpeg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" />On Wikipedia today there are about four times as many articles about men as there are about women, and around 90 percent of all those who write on Wikipedia are men. But WikiGap makes a difference. So far, the initiative, which has been ongoing since 8 March 2018, has generated about 3,000 new articles and updates of information. <br />29 August is the time to raise remarkable and famous women in research and innovation and we hope you want to join us! <br /><br />It doesn't matter if you have been editing on Wikipedia before, since you will get support in both English and Swedish. You can write in English or your native language. Everyone is welcome as long as focus is on female scientists and innovators. Which female reesearcher/innovator do you miss on Wikipedia? If you don't have a list of your own, you will be given suggestions on women who lack an article and articles which are suitable to update or translate. There will also be librarians on site to help out with references.<br /><br />You need to bring your own computer. A Swedish &quot;fika&quot; will be provided during the afternoon. <br /><br />Date: August 29, 2018<br />Time: 12: 30-16: 00<br />Location: Chalmers library, campus Johanneberg.<br /><br /><strong>REGISTRATION</strong><br /><a href="https://ui.ungpd.com/Surveys/21c472d8-1cb9-43e8-afdc-dcc098de7319"><img class="ms-asset-icon ms-rtePosition-4" src="/_layouts/images/icgen.gif" alt="" />Register to #WikiGap through this link.</a><br /><br /><strong>PHOTO STUDIO DURING WIKIGAP:</strong><br />We will fill the gap when it comes to uploaded images on Wikimedia Commons, which is Wikipedia's image database, too.
