Hi everyone,

I'm the former Wikipedian in Residence at the Smithsonian, and it was an opportunity that changed my career path and allowed me to make connections in the GLAM industry - and a chance to improve the world's largest encyclopedia and its' sister projects. If you, or someone you know, is a student with experience in editing Wikipedia and would like to live in Washington DC (or does live there) for the summer and get paid a stipend - please apply!!


I'd love to see more WIR women - right now I think there are only two-four of us internationally and about 20 men! :)

I'm happy to provide any off list input about working there, if you'd like.
