At the workshop you can either write new articles, improve existing ones, or translate articles. You will also get information on how to create a global Wikipedia user account with GU affiliation. With a global user account you can write and edit articles in all language editions.

To close the gap between men and women on Wikipedia Gothenburg Women Scientists invites you to join a WikiGap workshop.
Only 20% of the biographical articles on Wikipedia are about women. Gothenburg Women Scientists are hosting a Wikipedia editing event to add articles about women scientists to Wikipedia. The aim is to raise the profile and visibility of women.
No experience in editing Wikipedia is needed! Volunteers will be available to help us all get started on creating new pages or translating pages into our native language or adding to existing pages.
When you sign up, you’ll be sent more information on registering on Wikipedia and help with choosing a topic. Please bring a laptop with you!
Fika and coffee will be provided by volunteers at GoWoSci. EVERYONE is welcome!!!
No experience with Wikipedia is needed, just bring your lap top. More information will be sent when you register.
WikiGap started March 8, as an initiative from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. There is now a manual so that other organisations can arrange a WikiGap of their own.
