Ep 251: Highlighting Women Scientists on Wikipedia With Dr. Jess Wade Diverse: a SWE podcast

    • Education

Women and people of color have often been hidden figures in STEM, with their important contributions going unrecognized.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Karen Horting, CEO and executive director of SWE, sat down with Dr. Jess Wade, physicist and faculty member at Imperial College London, who has been working to change this.

Dr. Wade has created thousands of Wikipedia pages that highlight the achievements of women scientists and engineers. In this episode, she shares her own STEM journey, the inspiration behind her Wikipedia initiative and the unexpected surprises she has learned along the way.

You’ll also hear her tips for listeners who want to increase the visibility of underrepresented communities in STEM fields — on Wikipedia and beyond.
