Beazley Designs of the Year 2019 - Digital Category [shortlisted project]

Prize: Prize (including medals and awards)

Description

WikiD is an initiative that aims to contribute more profiles of women architects to Wikipedia, including women who have greatly contributed to our built environment or are undervalued in existing articles. To date, the group has made 12,000 revisions, such as changing women’s biographies from ‘wife’ to ‘designer’ and added over 200 new articles. In Australia alone, posts about women in the sector have increased ten-fold. It is a powerful initiative to provide balance in a still male-dominated profession.

WIkiD was nominated for the award by Dr Jos Boys from the Bartlett at the University College London, UK.
