- 100 Caribbean Leaders on Wikidata: Launching WikiCari's newest project
- Saturday Longer Sessions
Type of session:
Caribbean leaders (including public servants, activists, labour leaders, and scientists) are under-represented on Wikidata and Wikipedia. Join Wikimedians of the Caribbean and AfroCROWD as we launch a project to add new Wikidata items for 100 Caribbean leaders as the first step in a new project to add 10,000 Caribbean people to Wikidata. The presentation will consist of a panel discussion featuring Sherry Antoine and Ian Ramjohn of WikiCari.
We will discuss the current level of (under)representation of Caribbean people on Wikidata, and the importance of representation as a crucial knowledge equity goal.
Academic Peer Review option:
- Guettarda/Ian (Wiki Ed); Shanluan
- Wikimedians of the Caribbean
- 30-45 minutes
