Dear all, It’s been a while since I sent out the last movement strategy update. A lot has happened in the meantime, and I wanted to give you a heads-up regarding an upcoming call for participation!
But first things first: 1. The report from the Wikimedia Conference Movement Strategy Track <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Conference_2018/Documentation/Movement_Strategy_track> has been published. It captures all the conversations, insights and outputs from three days of intense strategy work, so it’s a (quite) long but very interesting read. It is meant to document the state of the process and to allow for a deep dive into it. It should be especially valuable for those of you who did not have a chance to participate in the conference or attended another conference track. 2. Based on WMCON outputs (and various conversations we’ve been having in our movement for years), the core strategy team has mapped eight key thematic areas <https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Strategy/Wikimedia_movement/2018-20/Working_Groups#What_are_the_key_thematic_areas%3F>  -- and some initial guiding questions -- that should to be answered to enable us to advance towards our strategic direction. These areas include: - Roles & Responsibilities - Resource Allocation & Revenue Streams - Diversity - Partnerships - Capacity Building - Community Health - Technology - Advocacy 3. The core team will be supporting the creation of Working Groups to take on these critical conversations. These working groups will be asked to assess the current situation of the thematic area, and obstacles and opportunities. They’ll have access to all the relevant information already collected, and the chance to do further research if needed. They’ll be asked to identify the changes needed in movement structures and develop concrete recommendations for the movement on how to ratify and implement them. An open call for working group members will go out to the movement this week -- please stay tuned for an update from Nicole! I also had the chance to present more about these plans at last week’s Metrics Meeting. Please do take a look, either look it all up on the Meta or watch the video!
