Dear fellow Wikimedians, In 2017, we set ourselves an ambitious goal of becoming the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge, and now we need a path for how we get there. In the spirit of what got us started – we will work together to find our path.
We now have a fundamental tool in place to help us get there: scoping documents have been finalized and are now live on Meta. These will help us dive deeper into our movement’s structures than ever before and discover exciting opportunities for our future. The scoping documents have been created by the nine working groups of the Movement Strategy Process. I would like to thank them wholeheartedly for their enormous effort and dedication to making this first step happen. These documents are a focused reflection of the discussions about our future that have been happening for some time. The working groups have captured these and boiled them down into a set of questions that will guide their work going forward. These are the essential questions of our movement. Now, we have the chance – and the mandate – to answer them together. Identifying how we need to adapt our structures and maximizing our movement’s potential lie at the heart of these questions. We encourage you to read the scoping documents about the topics you care about and bring your ideas for possible solutions in to the the global conversation about our future. The documents have been translated into eight languages already, and we are working on translating more of our meta content into more languages over the next couple of weeks. I would also like to introduce a new addition to the core team, our Community Relations Specialist Kelsi Stine-Rowe. Kelsi will be working with members of Wikimedia communities and organized groups to facilitate community conversations on the scoping documents. Join in! Here’s how can you get involved: * Sign up as a Strategy Liaison for your organized group and ensure that your group’s perspectives are heard. * Take part in our community conversations happening until mid-April on Meta, via survey, and within several communities. Kelsi will also be in touch later today with more concrete information about joining the community conversations. We look forward to hearing your voices and your perspectives.
