Use this guide to help you get started as you contribute to how women are represented on Wikipedia!
A Wikipedia Dashboard is a tool that allows users to sign-in to a Wikipedia program or event. Once you log into the program, all edits you make on Wikipedia will be tracked and attributed to our April 21st Emory event, giving everyone a clear picture of our editing efforts.

Did you know?
This event is held in honor of Women's History Month. Our goal is to build the body of knowledge about women on Wikipedia, while also getting more women interested in editing entries today and in the future.
Basic Steps for participation:
Create a Wikipedia Account
While you do not need to create an account to edit Wikipedia, having one allows you to track your contributions, "watch" articles of interest, and take ownership of your work.
If you prefer not to have an account, your IP address will be automatically recorded for edits.
Step 1: Open Wikipedia's English-language homepage: https://en.wikipedia.org and click "Create account" at the top right corner of the page.
Step 2: Choose your username and password. Think carefully about your username and password:
Your username will be tied to each edit that you make and is publicly-visible in a page's edit history
Your password should be strong and unique for optimum security
Note: You do not need to provide an email address (it will never be publicly displayed), but an email address is helpful for potential password recovery in the future
