Event Description

January 15, 2021 marks Wikipedia’s 20th birthday, and NYC Media Lab is celebrating with some of the brightest minds in media. Join us on January 15th at 1pm ET for a virtual chat with Wikimedia Foundation CEO Katherine Maher and host of NPR’s TED Radio Hour, Manoush Zomorodi.

Manoush and Katherine will talk about Wikipedia’s role in the ongoing fight against mis and disinformation, address some of the biggest misconceptions you hear about Wikipedia, and discuss how research and knowledge sharing may change over the next 20 years.

And we want to hear from you! As you RSVP, submit a question or two for Wikimedia Foundation CEO Katherine Maher. She’ll do her best to answer all attendee questions during the 15-minute Q&A. See you online on January 15th!
