Hi all —
Wikimania is coming, but before we get to Montreal, we are publishing many
more insights, reports, guides, and research from our work during cycle 3.
There's lots of good stuff and interesting insights (did you know Spain is
consistently one of the countries with the highest awareness about our
projects and community?), and I encourage you to take a look. Here are a
few new updates:
*New voices synthesis report.* Are you looking to better understand New
Voices projects? Start with this overview report — it summarizes our work
across many teams: insights from research, a summary of 58 expert
interviews, expert convenings hosted by the Foundation and affiliates,
design research findings, briefings on major trends that will impact the
community like misinformation and emerging platforms, further reading, and
(of course!) references.
*July Wikimedia Foundation metrics meeting.* During our July 27 meeting,
we reviewed new research on brand insights about why people do (and do not)
read Wikipedia, research that focuses on high-awareness countries as part
of New Voices initiatives.
*Strategic direction committee update.* We are working to consider what
we have heard from the community and learned from research to identify what
we want to achieve as a movement by 2030. We will share our first draft of
the strategic direction with all of you in advance of Wikimania. We’re
looking forward to your thoughts on the talk page!
*Wikimania movement strategy and events.* Speaking of Wikimania, the
Foundation is preparing 6 sessions related to the strategy process in the
official program. We will also offer you a physical location for engaging
with the strategic direction: the Movement Strategy Space, open from
Thursday through Sunday. The Space will host different working sessions,
discussions, and the chance to re-energize for the coming weeks and months
(we have some special things in store!). The conference organizers are also
preparing a remote attendee plan with live video and content for the
conference overall, so you will be able to participate if you’re not able
to come to Montreal. Please note that online registration ended July 31;
after that you can register on-site starting August 8.
ভালো থাকবেন। (Bengali translation: “Stay well”)
