US Video Wiki includes WITS in STEM group post

  • 5 May 2020

WITS is delighted to be included in the US Ezvid Wiki recently published video wiki Groups Supporting Underrepresented Groups In STEM. Watch the WITS section starting at 2’55". It outlines WITS and celebrates Mary Mulvihill WITS founder.

The video wiki highlights five organizations helping make STEM accessible to all:

  1. Latinas in STEM US
  2. STEMETTES UK
  3. Pride in STEM UK, US
  4. WITS Ireland
  5. The Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students US

The video wiki argues that people in STEM fields are doing important work that shapes our understanding of the world and the technology we use every day. However students are often discouraged from pursuing higher education in these areas, either through explicit discrimination or subtler microaggressions that add up over time and make them feel unwelcome.

The groups in the video highlight the achievements of underrepresented groups working in STEM to encourage young people of all backgrounds to learn more about science and technology. This video was made with Ezvid Wikimaker.

Some background

Founded in 2011, Ezvid Wiki was the world's first video wiki, and is now among the top 3,000 websites in the United States. The YouTube channel has nearly 600,000 subscribers, with over 325 million views since founding. The Wiki never accepts payment for inclusion in any wiki. Many of their millions of monthly visitors will now be exposed to WITS work.

Thanks to Wiki.ezvid.com for the post.
