Re: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Foundation Chief of Community Engagement to leave the Foundation

2019-11-15 Thread Paul J. Weiss
I find the disbanding of the Community Engagement department at WMF to be
quite concerning. I will go so far as to say that I view it as a mistake
that will have negative impacts well into the future.

For one thing, the structure of an organization is in some sense a
statement of priorities. I believe this move does indeed say to employees,
the community, allied organization, and the rest of the world that the WMF
is now placing less value on engaging the community. Given that many in the
community have been feeling this already, this is not an opportune time to
make this transition, even if it were a good idea for other reasons.

Another issue is the specific placement of individual teams. For example,
you say that returning the Trust & Safety team to the Legal department is
intuitive. It certainly is not to me, and that move in particular is
concerning. The team's homepage on Meta states that it "identifies, builds
and – as appropriate – staffs processes which keep our users safe; design,
develop, and execute on a strategy that integrates legal, product,
research, and learning & evaluation to proactively mitigate risk as well as
manage the overall safety of our online and offline communities when
incidents happen." The legal aspect is only one of many in the team's
purview, and hopefully not a large one.

In my experience, units within legal departments take a very legalistic
view of their work. As one example, many colleges and universities have an
office for students with disabilities. In the US, those that are in legal
or policy departments tend to focus very much on doing the minimum they
have to do under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), rather than
being student-centered. (This is the case here at the University of
Washington.) Compare this to the focus of units for women, students of
color, etc., often hierarchically under student services, who are much more
proactive and supportive.

I definitely do not want Trust & Safety to narrow its focus to ensuring
enforcement & reducing liability. As you know, legal but negative behavior
is a significant threat to the future of Wikipedia and sister projects. The
team needs to be organizationally placed to maximize, not minimize, its
access to resources, the community, and other staff as well as its impact.
Placing it in Legal could, for example, decrease significantly contact and
trust from our community members whose experience with laws is that they
are used as weapons and tools to oppress rather than engendering fairness
and cooperation.

Please, please carefully consider the all ramifications of this
reorganization before it is implemented.

Thank you,

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Wikimedia Foundation Chief of Community Engagement
to leave the Foundation
From: 'Katherine Maher' 
Date: 11/15/19 3:36 pm
To: 'Wikimedia Mailing List' 

Hello everyone,

I am writing to let you know that Val D’Costa, Chief Community Engagement
Officer, is leaving the Wikimedia Foundation. I also want to share some
changes we’re making around how the Foundation organizes staff in the
Community Engagement department.

Val joined us last January, bringing nearly three decades of experience
launching and growing international initiatives in emerging markets. With
the Wikimedia 2030 movement strategy as a guide, Val and her team drafted
an ambitious new vision for the work of Community Engagement—focused on
decentralization of power and resources, safe and welcoming spaces,
equitable collaboration, increased language and cultural fluency, dedicated
programs for groups such as women and young people, and expansive
partnerships in service of free knowledge.

With this vision in hand, Val and I both see this as the right juncture for
her to move on to her next professional challenge. While she will be
leaving the position of Chief of Community Engagement, she will remain on
as a consultant to me for a brief period.

I am deeply appreciative of Val’s time with us at the Foundation and want
to thank her for the contributions she has made to the Wikimedia movement.
She has been a passionate and persuasive advocate for our mission and
pushed us to expand our vision of what could be possible for our movement.
I wish her the absolute best in what she does next.

*== What comes next for Community Engagement ==*

I'll be direct -- we are making changes to the CE department structure.

We will not be starting a search for a new Chief of Community Engagement.
Instead, over the course of the next few weeks, the seven teams currently
within the Community Engagement (CE) department will be integrated into the
Foundation’s other departments. By January, all of the teams will have
joined their new departments, and “Community Engagement” will no longer be
a standalone department.

The teams currently in CE will be integrated with other Foundation
departments aligned with executive leadership goals and based on their

Hi James,

Thanks for the suggestion. I remember looking at VideoWiki awhile ago and
deciding that it wouldn't be a good fit for what I have in mind, but I'll
take another look, possibly after I'm finished with the pilot videos. I
have a lot on my agenda at the moment, and I'm trying not to add more
complexity in the short term.

Thanks very much for the thorough explanation, Katherine.

I'll share a few comments below. These aren't directed to anyone in
particular.

I have no opinion one way or another about the change of structure, but I
hope that for everyone's sake this will be okay, perhaps even a net
positive in the medium term. My guess is that some of the team changes will
be fine with minor adjustments while others will have more issues to work
through.

I wouldn't be surprised if there is a Community Engagement Department again
in the future.

Have a good weekend,

Although we have a good sense of which teams will integrate with which

We expect to wrap up these conversations in early December, to begin
transitions in mid-December, and for the transitions to be completed by the
beginning of January, at which point we’ll be able to share an overview of

The work of the Community Engagement teams will remain the same throughout

member, that work will also continue. If you have any questions, please
feel free to reach out to Greg Varnum at gvar...@wikimedia.org or leave
your question in Wikimedia Space [1] and we’ll make sure we find an answer
to your question.

*== Why are we making this change? ==*

The Community Engagement department has grown and evolved since it was
created in 2015. We have brought in people with an increasingly diverse set
of skills and backgrounds and introduced new support for additional
languages, geographies, and areas of work, such as community health.

While this has helped the Foundation come a long way in addressing the
needs of the movement, it has also created complexity. The breadth of
activities and competencies now supported by the department is quite
large—today, we have people working on issues as diverse as GLAM collection
management, participatory grantmaking, and contributor safety—and
increasingly, across many geographies, cultures, and languages.

This has created challenges for how we effectively coordinate such a range
of specializations, how we assess their efficacy and impact against our
mission. At the same time, as the Foundation has grown, we have developed
capacities in other departments who will be good partners to those serving
our community mission.

In making these changes, we see an opportunity to align the functions of
the Foundation with the future of the mission and movement, and better
serve long-time contributors and emerging communities alike. Over time, we
anticipate these new arrangements will deepen the understanding of
community efforts among all Foundation staff and programs, integrate
community perspective across program design

Hi all,

The next Research Showcase will be live-streamed on Wednesday, November 20,
2019, at 9:30 AM PST/17:30 UTC. We’ll have a presentation from Martin
Potthast of Leipzig University on text reuse in Wikipedia and other
presentation from the Wikimedia Foundation’s Isaac Johnson on the
demographics and interests of Wikipedia’s readers.

Wikipedia Text Reuse: Within and Without

By Martin Potthast, Leipzig University

We study text reuse related to Wikipedia at scale by compiling the first
corpus of text reuse cases within Wikipedia as well as without (i.e., reuse
of Wikipedia text in a  sample of the Common Crawl). To discover reuse
beyond verbatim copy and paste, we employ state-of-the-art text reuse
detection technology, scaling it for the first time to process the entire
Wikipedia as part of a distributed retrieval pipeline. We further report on
a pilot analysis of the 100 million reuse cases inside, and the 1.6 million
reuse cases outside Wikipedia that we discovered. Text reuse inside
Wikipedia gives rise to new tasks such as article template induction,
fixing quality flaws, or complementing Wikipedia’s ontology. Text reuse
outside Wikipedia yields a tangible metric for the emerging field of
quantifying Wikipedia’s influence on the web. To foster future research
into these tasks, and for reproducibility’s sake, the Wikipedia text reuse
corpus and the retrieval pipeline are made freely available. Paper

Characterizing Wikipedia Reader Demographics and Interests

By Isaac Johnson, Wikimedia Foundation

Building on two past surveys on the motivation and needs of Wikipedia
readers (Why We Read Wikipedia
; Why
the World Reads Wikipedia
),
we examine the relationship between Wikipedia reader demographics and their
interests and needs. Specifically, we run surveys in thirteen different
languages that ask readers three questions about their motivation for
reading Wikipedia (motivation, needs, and familiarity) and five questions
about their demographics (age, gender, education, locale, and native
language). We link these survey results with the respondents' reading
sessions -- i.e. sequence of Wikipedia page views -- to gain a more
fine-grained understanding of how a reader's context relates to their
activity on Wikipedia. We find that readers have a diversity of backgrounds
but that the high-level needs of readers do not correlate strongly with
individual demographics. We also find, however, that there are
relationships between demographics and specific topic interests that are
consistent across many cultures and languages. This work provides insights
into the reach of various Wikipedia language editions and the relationship
between content or contributor gaps and reader gaps. See the meta page

for more details.
