The Planetary Science Wiki Edit-a-thon
The Planetary Science Wiki Edit-a-thon aims to highlight diversity within the planetary science community.
The Diversity Committee of the Europlanet Society, in collaboration with Women in Red and WikiDonne, is organising a second edition of the Planetary Science Wiki Edit-A-Thon that was first held during EPSC2020. The 2021 Edit-A-Thon will continue to create and translate Wikipedia profiles to highlight diversity within the planetary science community.
