Workshops and Poster Presentations

AWM Workshop: Mathematicians + Wikipedia – A Training Edit-a-thon, organized by Xavier Ramos Olive, Smith College, and Francesca Bernardi, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Friday, 10:30 a.m. –12:00 p.m. Join us in our efforts to reduce the “Wikipedia gender gap” in the Mathematical Sciences! Attendees will be trained by expert Wikipedians to edit and translate Wikipedia biographies of Mathematicians with a particular focus on people from marginalized groups. After the introductory tutorial, participants will have an hour to actively edit existing pages with the help of experienced editors. A list of pages will be provided, and edits and impact will be tracked through an online dashboard.

AWM Workshop Poster Presentations and Reception, Friday, 4:00–5:30 p.m. AWM will conduct its workshop poster presentations by women graduate students. This session is open to all JMM attendees.
