A Talk by Dr. Jessica Wade (Omperial College London)
Tal - Discussion - Q/A - Reception

Diverse science teams do better research that is more highly cited, more impactful, more reflective of the societies it serves. However, the representation of women scientists in America – and around the world – is still extraordinarily low. Dr. Wade will talk about the importance of the awareness of the universality of (historic and present) scientific contributions for global human development. Dr. Wade will also discuss her efforts to increase visibility of scientists from historically marginalized groups on Wikipedia. Dr. Wade has contributed over 2100 biographical articles to Wikipedia to raise the profile of minorities in STEM.
