Re: [Wikimedia-l] Project Grants program will fund 11 community-led projects

2018-06-07 Thread Maria Cruz
Hi everyone,

As you may know, we recently funded 11 projects through Wikimedia
Foundation Project Grants program, initiatives that span from software
development, to online organizing, and offline outreach. In an effort to
increase awareness about these projects, and foster collaboration and
participation, we are hosting the first ever Wikimedia Project Showcase
this coming Thursday, June 13, at 9 am PST (1600 UTC).

You can join the showcase in one of two ways:

   - Join the video conference room using BlueJeans:
   https://bluejeans.com/570420589
   - watch the showcase online via Youtube following this link:
   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rFjo8wg4wKw

Each participant will have 5 minutes to present about their project, share
why it matters, and how others can get involved. If you would like to
contribute your skills to a project, help out, or simply learn more about
the awesome work our communities are doing, please join us at the Wikimedia
Project Showcase next Thursday!


Looking forward to seeing many of you there,


María and Marti

I don't think the Movement Roles discussion had any impact on
Wikimedia UK achieving charity status (which in any case happened
before the movement roles conversation concluded), and in any case
Wikimedia UK does virtually no lobbying

Oh, it's this discussion again. This is my favorite discussion.
Movement roles discussion is how we got the UK chapter recognized as a
charity capable of political lobbying. That was satisfying.

Maybe we can get the letter to donors back.

Roles and responsibilities may be a better term, It has a meaning that 
is more likely to be understood than "power dynamics", which frankly 
sounds more like rocket science than what people in a group are 
expected to do.

Dear Katherine,

Thank very much you for this update. I was working in the “role and 
responsibilities” group in Berlin and the outcome was that we had 
decided to rename it “power dynamics” if I recall correctly.


Now I see this name has not been used, so I feel a little surprized?

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Update #4: Upcoming call for participation in Working Groups

2018-06-07 Thread Nicole Ebber
Hi all,

Thank you, Natacha, for bringing this up. And thanks, Gnangarra, for
quoting our reasoning behind keeping the original name, and to Peter for
the rocket science comparison. ;)

Chris, thank you for highlighting these questions. Yes, there will be some
overlap between the groups, and we consider this an opportunity. Quote from
the WG meta page: “Connection and collaboration between Working Groups will
be essential. It will be up to the Working Group to identify collaboration
needs and opportunities, as well as to actively maintain collaborations
across groups. This will be supported by the Core Team who will act as the
‘backbone support’ of all the Working Groups.”
This also means, that some of the recommendations might have to be
finalized earlier than others, so that other groups can build upon them. We
cannot set a fixed order or timeline for this, but it will get clearer as
soon as the working groups’ start coordinating their work.

The detailed process beyond the reports and consultation across groups is
not yet finalized, partly because we are still in the recruiting process
for the Information & Knowledge Manager. We would also like to work on this
together with the Working Groups instead of setting the process in stone
before it even started.

All the best,
Nicole

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Update #4: Upcoming call for participation in Working Groups

2018-06-07 Thread Chris Keating
Hi Katherine!

Thanks for the update and look forward to the call for working groups.

I don't know if anyone has considered where the boundary will lie
between the different groups. For instance, "roles and
responsibilities" strikes me as potentially having a big overlap with
"resources" - given that the biggest single part of governance is
governance of funds.

Also, what is the process beyond the reports from the working groups?
What happens if, for instance, there are tensions between the outputs
of different working groups, or downright contradictions?

Thanks,

Chris

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Update #4: Upcoming call for participation in Working Groups

2018-06-07 Thread Peter Southwood
Roles and responsibilities may be a better term, It has a meaning that is more 
likely to be understood than "power dynamics", which frankly sounds more like 
rocket science than what people in a group are expected to do. 
Cheers,
Peter

Working Groups

Dear Katherine,

Thank very much you for this update. I was working in the “role and 
responsibilities” group in Berlin and the outcome was that we had decided to 
rename it “power dynamics” if I recall correctly.

Now I see this name has not been used, so I feel a little surprized? 

Kind regards,

Natacha / Nattes à chat
