Dear fellow Wikimedians,

We have some “hot off the press” updates from the Movement Strategy Process
Wikimedia 2030:

== What are the working groups currently doing? ==

Members of the nine working groups
are busy analyzing their thematic area, exploring how it could evolve by
2030 and finalizing their set of guiding questions. The answers to these
questions will form the basis of recommendations for structural changes
that will enable the movement to successfully and strongly advance in in
our Strategic Direction.

The groups are working in the area of Advocacy, Capacity Building,
Community Health, Diversity, Partnerships, Product and Technology, Resource
Allocation, Revenue Streams, as well as Roles and Responsibilities. Each
group is looking to have a first draft of their questions ready by the
beginning of March. These drafts will then be refined and reworked in the
run up to the Wikimedia Summit
<>[2] at the end
of March.

== A recap of the in-person working groups' meeting in Berlin ==

In February, three working groups (Roles and Responsibilities, Revenue
Streams, and Resource Allocation) met in person
at the Wikimedia Deutschland offices in Berlin. They worked (almost)
non-stop for three days, and came out with a set of guiding questions that
they are now refining.

== The Movement Strategy Process at the Wikimedia Summit ==

Our process  will take center stage at the Wikimedia Summit
<>[2] (March 29 to
31 in Berlin), with representatives from the nine working groups presenting
their work so far and engaging with Affiliates, the Wikimedia Foundation
and its committees on what the next steps will be.

== How can you get involved? Join our community conversation! ==

What are the questions we are seeking answers to? How can the broader
community contribute to the structural changes? Prepare to take part in our
community conversations to find out! This will happen in March on the Meta-Wiki
page <>[3],
on several language wikis, and also via survey. In this online
conversation, you will be able to offer your insight and feedback on the
guiding questions.

== What’s next? ==

It is all systems go in the Movement Strategy Process. Alongside providing
support to all the working groups, the core team is currently on the search
for Strategy Liaisons
to act as the point of contact between the Working Groups and the Arabic,
Farsi, French, German, Hindi, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish, and Portuguese
communities. We are also looking for representatives from organized groups
to become liaisons with the strategy process. And we have just added a
Community Relations Specialist to our team, who will work with the
community liaisons and ensure an effective dialogue.

Please reach out to us with any questions or comments you might have.

All the best,
