To all the Girls in ICT, Women in Tech, Content Creators, Photographers, Entrepreneurs and Feminists in Bulawayo .TechEmpowerment is helping coordinate the 1st Global Editathon “Girls in ICT” which is being organised by The Internet Society in coordination with Wikimedia Foundation .This event is scheduled for April 27 on the occasion of the Girls in ICT Day (which is on April 26).
We want to create content written by women and about women on the Girls in ICT Day, mainly to make women in technology more visible and to inspire girls to pursue STEM careers. On that day, we will edit the biographies of women: founding, pioneers, entrepreneurs, developers, and leaders in technology from each region.
What is an Editathon?
An edit-a-thon (sometimes written editathon) is an organized event where editors of online communities such as Wikipedia, OpenStreetMap, and LocalWiki edit and improve a specific topic or type of content, typically including basic editing training for new editors. – Wikipedia
