Presentation on the role of information architects in improving diversity and inclusion of underrepresented topics in Wikipedia, given at the 2017 Information Architecture Summit in Vancouver on March 25, 2017.
Wikipedia is the world's largest encyclopedia; however, fair representation of notable, but underrepresented people and topics remains a major concern. In response, the Wikimedia Foundation has supported many grassroots efforts including Women in Red, Art+Feminism, Wiki Loves Pride, Black Lunch Table and AfroCROWD, among others, to improve discovery of these topics.
This presentation offered an overview of current efforts to diversify the information available on Wikipedia. Learn how we can use our Information Architecture skills and Wikimedia tools to improve the findability and representation of valuable, but missing information, and start contributing to the topics you care about.
