The Planetary Science Wiki Edit-a-thon
The Planetary Science Wiki Edit-a-thon, organised by the Diversity Committee of the Europlanet Society in collaboration with WikiMujeres, Women in Red, WikiDonne, Wikimedia Belgium, and 500 Women Scientists, is an ongoing project. The main objective is to highlight diversity within the planetary science community.
Once more, a Wiki Edit-a-thon took place during the Europlanet Science Congress (EPSC) 2022. It kicked off with a splinter session on Sunday 18 September from 16:15-17:15, which provided basic training to start editing/writing Wikipedia articles.
Writing sessions will took place daily in the Wiki Edit-a-thon booth (part of the Europlanet stands in the main exhibition hall, on the left-hand side as you walk in from the entrance to the Palacio de Congresos de Granada).
A group has met for ongoing monthly meetings and continued to add and translate profiles. EPSC2022 will be an opportunity to expand the group and develop more new profiles and translations.

The Planetary Science Wiki Edit-a-thon was launched at EPSC2020 in a virtual splinter session on Tuesday 22 September that was convened by Arianna Piccialli (BIRA-IASB) and included presentations by Rosie Stephenson-Goodknight (Women in Red), Camelia Boban (WikiDonne), Jessica Wade (University of London), and Maryam Zaringhalam (500 Women Scientists):
