    Board member Jareen Imam and board chair Angilee Shah led a workshop at the AEJMC 2022 Midwinter Conference. What’s AEJMC, you ask? It’s the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, the organization for educators, students and media professionals who are training the next generation of journalists.

    If you are signed up for Women Do News emails, you’ll get the recorded session in your inbox.

    The 90-minuted session focused on ways to increase the representation of women journalists on Wikipedia by collaborating with Women Do News. It started a brief overview of gender bias on Wikipedia, with Wiki Edu, and explored how it contributes to the challenges women journalists face today. Then the team from Women Do News talked through the nuts and bolts of Wikipedia editing, explaining how educators and students can get involved.

In this event, we showed Jaws and Women Do News conference-goers how to join the movement. We gave a 20-minute presentation on how tovolunteer and add articles into Wikipedia, followed by a 40-minute edit-a-thon. Here’s more.
