Wikipedia Gender Gap Talk on March 5

On March 5, I’ll be speaking on Wikipedia’s gender gap in a panel discussion at Capilano University. The event starts at 5:30 in the Bosa Centre auditorium, http://www.capilanou.ca/about/Directions-Maps/ .

Only 9-15% of regular Wikipedia contributors are women. I’ll discuss perspectives on the gender gap, and how it affects us all as readers. Other panelists will be talking about online harassment and GamerGate. I’ll touch a bit on those topics as well in a Wikipedia context. Hope to see you there :)
