WikiConference North America 2023 unfortunately could not accommodate this submission in its program this year.


Equity Outreach - Encouraging Diverse Instructors to Teach with Wikipedia


Equity / Inclusion / Community Health

Type of session:

Lightning talk


In July 2022, I started working as the Equity Outreach Coordinator at Wiki Education. My primary role is to reach out to institutions and instructors, with a focus on underrepresented communities of institutions and instructors, to encourage them to teach with Wikipedia. During this talk, I will provide an overview of Wiki Education's progress in connecting with instructors teaching at diverse institutions. I will also present data on student demographics and my outreach efforts' impact on Wikipedia. Attendees will leave the talk knowing how to diversify Wikipedia's content and contributors.
