This year our community decided to contribute to improving and translating articles about Women in STEM from Albania and Sweden.
At this event, we invited 2 guest speakers: Teuta Toska, an Albanian Linguist, and Ermelinda Mahmutaj, a botanist and well-known environmental activist.
Both of them talked about why girls should choose an education in STEM fields, Albanian scientist women that had inspired them, and what it meant for them to be women in STEM in Albania.
At WikiGap, the participants learned how to present information about Women in STEM’s work on Wikipedia.
In the meantime, the participants are writing articles on their own, and we will have a follow-up meeting at the ambassador’s residence to watch a movie about women. This moment will reflect on improving more articles about women and to close gender gap on Wikipedia.
We have a public Telegram channel (language used mostly Albanian) if you want to join and discuss Wikimedia projects.
