Really interesting, thanks for your talk Steve.
Katy Roucoux

That's a beautiful slide Jess
Emily Rees
01:11:18
Remember to ask any questions here that you have for any of the speakers, current or former! I’m keeping a list of questions so we can turn to them throughout the day.
Fiona Gill
01:13:25
That is a depressing statistic!
Fiona Gill
01:14:05
But I think that fact is even worse!
Katy Roucoux
01:14:51
I didn't know this.
Aviwe Matiwane
01:14:58

AMAZING WORK
Katy Roucoux
01:15:12
Just a great project. How do you get your core research done?!
James Mckay
01:16:44
I would recommend a book called 'On this Day She...' by Jo Bell - 365 biographies of extraordinary women, one for each day
Emily Rees
01:17:33
We are keen to run a wikithon for underrepresented groups in palaeontology, so If you’re interested let us know!
Rachel Warnock (she/her)
01:18:03
Definitely up for that Emily!

Thanks a lot Jess for this incredible amount of work you have done!
Katy Roucoux
01:19:27
Quite right - your talk was v inspiring!
Aviwe Matiwane
01:19:37
Thank you Jess. Amazing talk!!
Paige Ann Madison
01:19:56
That was very inspiring, thanks a ton
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:20:22
Yay! @Katy I edit Wikipedia by night and do research by day :)
Rachel Warnock (she/her)
01:21:02
Agreed. Very brilliant talk!
Fiona Gill
01:21:44
@Jess I am in awe of your energy and committment!
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:21:46
Thanks to everyone, always happy to have a chat about wikipedia or Gladys West or chiral materials, :)

01:22:37
Jess - are there ways we could incorporate this into outreach activities with young people? have you talked about your work with schoo-age students?
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:23:41
Yes! I do wiki edit-a-thons with school kids too. They really love writing for wikipedia, and it’s good for teaching them about referencing and how to do a literature review etc. Translating into other languages is very value too.
Katy Roucoux
01:24:03
@Jess - impressive! I think my School (School of Geography and Sustainable Development, St Andrews) would very much like to hear about what you do. I'll ask them.
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:24:22
That would be an honour! Please email me: jessica.wade@imperial.ac.uk
Emma Dunne (she/her)
01:26:22
Thanks so much for your talk and amazing work, Jess! Do you know what the stats for the numbers of articles about women on non-English Wikipedias might be , or if there are people working to add (or translate) these articles in other languages?
Jane Dickinson
01:26:53
Hi Jess, I work in outreach at Leeds, I'd love to get in touch too if that's ok?
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:27:32
@Emma, this might be useful: https://whgi.wmflabs.org/
Pierre Gueriau
01:27:47
For Jess: you mentioned that for Gladys West you could get a lot of information because she was a government employee, but how do you manage to get so much information (in particular regarding youth / early career) for other women? Where did you get all your information about their lives? Do you interview these women and/or their relatives / colleagues ? Or everything comes from books and/or website and you gather all of it?
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:27:58
Yeah sure @Jane, that sounds great.
Jess Wade (she/her)
01:29:18
@Pierre Oh, it’s pretty easy: archives, university pages, professional societies. Sometimes textbooks and journals. I think we’re all trained to be quite good at literature reviews :)
Pierre Gueriau
01:35:32
Thanks @Jess. I am just so amazed at how much « early life and education » information you can get from such sources.

The Woman Engineer can be a good source for writing wiki bios of women in engineering and other STEM subjects https://www.theiet.org/membership/library-archives/the-iet-archives/online-exhibitions/women-and-engineering/the-woman-engineer-journal/

So how did your project and experience working on illustrating the polar forests contribute towards decolonization?
Steven Gleadall
01:49:59
It's great that the childrens' work was included in the final pieces. How long does it take to create one of the comics?
Michael Bravo
01:52:24
James, I’m interested to see that your art collaboration the Wegener Institute on the antarctic not only made the cover of Nature, but was included as a figure in the journal article itself. I’d be interested to hear you say a bit more about that.
Katy Roucoux
01:52:28
So many great ideas here... for alternative media for outreach and engagement with difficult to reach groups.
Katy Roucoux

My son (8) just had a look over my shoulder and really liked your graphic novels :-)
