Hi all!

For the last few months, we’ve all been talking together - on wiki, and in
person - about our own personal and community hopes and goals for the
Wikimedia projects and movement. But while this has been going on, members
of the strategy team have been doing research into the world outside the

This month, during Cycle 3, we’re sharing what we’ve learned from outside -
from readers, experts, and partners from our New Voices initiative. Right
now, the focus is on ensuring that the voices that normally aren’t part of
our strategic discussions are present and well-represented, and that those
of us in the movement have the opportunity to see into the future, and
think ahead about the way the world is changing. [1]  One of my recent
provided a summary of the broader context and goals for Cycle 3. Today, I
wanted to share some new resources and materials we’ve published in the
past two weeks, and note that there’s much more to come!

June Wikimedia Foundation Metrics Meeting

Voices team members provided an overview of initial findings from ongoing
research projects and affiliate-led salons and events. [3]

Considering 2030: Misinformation, verification, and propaganda
The Foundation is working with independent research consultants to
understand the key trends that will affect the future of free knowledge.
This assessment is based on a review of more than one hundred reports,
articles, and studies, and it includes a framework to discuss and monitor
trends in misinformation. [4] Please join the conversation on meta or your
local wiki in the next couple of days. [5]

Discussions with experts on the evolving history of knowledge sharing
<https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/07/07/brown-bag-knowledge-sharing/>. We
summarized and published videos and transcripts [6] and outcomes [7] of
three recent brown bag events with experts in social mobilization, emerging
communities, and new readers.

WikiWomenCamp 2017
<https://blog.wikimedia.org/2017/07/14/wikiwomencamp-inclusivity/>. At the
second WikiWomenCamp in Mexico City, attendees discussed challenges and
opportunities for women participation in the movement (the inaugural event
was held in Argentina in 2002, and we’re thrilled to see its return). There
are some excellent published photos [8] from the event to check out as well
as a summary of the event on our blog [9].

Bene habeas (Latin translation: “May it be well for you”)
