> Hello,
> As most of you are aware, the Wikimedia movement has embarked on an
> ambitious initiative to discuss our collective future and determine a
> movement-wide strategic direction. [1]
> The movement is composed of people in many different roles, notably
> individual contributors who may not be affiliated with any organized
> group. It can be challenging to reach individual contributors and
> involve them in strategy discussions, since they may not monitor the
> usual communication channels, and they may not think that strategy
> discussions are relevant to them.
> For this year’s movement strategy process, the Wikimedia Foundation
> has decided to hire 19 part-time discussion coordinators to better
> bridge the gap between the strategy discussions and local communities
> of contributors.
> Today, I am thrilled to announce that we have concluded the search and
> assembled a stellar team of 19 long-time Wikimedians, who have agreed
> to join the movement strategy efforts in this capacity.
> As you go through the team’s page on Meta-Wiki, you will see many
> familiar names. [2] The team is composed of Abbad, Bohdan, Chico,
> Gereon, Jonatan, Ran, Marco, Nahid, Niccolò, Tomasz, Robin, Samuel,
> Satdeep, Szymon, Oleg, Takashi, Todd, Tuan, and Venus. Because of the
> team’s geographic distribution, Jan Eissfeldt, from the Foundation’s
> Support and Safety team, has agreed to help lead the day-to-day
> activities of the group of Asian language coordinators.
> All the coordinators started on Monday for a 3-month contract, and
> they have already been hard at work, translating materials on Meta and
> organizing the outreach to their local communities. [3] Some will
> focus their efforts on specific language communities [4], and others
> will support an array of smaller communities.
> If you are interested in working with the coordinators to bridge the
> gap with your local communities, I invite you to take a look at the
> description of the coordinator role, and sign up using the form on
> that page. [5] You can also contact them directly via their talk page.
> I want to express my deepest gratitude to everyone who was involved in
> this ultra-fast hiring process, most notably the Foundation’s Talent &
> Culture team, who handled the recruiting and administrative onboarding
> masterfully, and the Community Engagement department, who reached out
> to their contacts, thoroughly reviewed applications, and made this
> ambitious wave of recruiting ridiculously easy for me.
> Please join me in welcoming Venus, Tuan, Todd, Takashi, Oleg, Szymon,
> Satdeep, Samuel, Robin, Tomasz, Niccolò, Nahid, Marco, Ran, Jonatan,
> Gereon, Chico, Bohdan, and Abbad in their new role.
