Hi everyone,
> We recently held the harmonization sprint in Tunis [1], where
> representatives from each working group met in person to continue bringing
> nine separate sets of draft recommendations into one set. The event also
> brought together staff members from the Wikimedia Foundation and Wikimedia
> Deutschland, the WMF Chair of the Board of Trustees, and members of the
> core team. A longer narrative report will be published in the coming weeks;
> in the meantime, see a short day-by-day report on Meta, photos on commons
> [2], and check out the hashtag #hs2030 on Twitter [3].
> In the lead up to the meeting, the working groups were busy refining their
> draft recommendations based on feedback received at in person events from
> Wikimedians across the movement as well as on wiki, via email, and on
> social media since March of this year. They had also begun identifying
> overlaps in each other’s recommendations and content. A second iteration of
> draft recommendations [4] was published on Meta just before the sprint for
> the communities’ information.
> At the sprint, we continued to group recommendations based on
> commonalities. From there, we looked at what kinds of structures would need
> to be in place to deliver the Wikimedia 2030 vision. A first, rough
> grouping of recommendations came together at the sprint. But what became
> clear during the event was that before it’s possible to create a coherent
> and actionable set of recommendations, fundamental principles that underpin
> the path towards 2030 need to be formalized.
> The core team is currently processing the discussion materials and
> outcomes. Analysis of the current draft recommendations will continue so as
> to create one unified set. The timeline will shift and we are looking into
> options for another round of community input.
> I would like to make clear that the reason we were not able to achieve our
> initial goal in Tunis was due to a lack of clarity and guidance on the core
> team’s part. Still, the time was not wasted and important, honest
> conversations were had. The working group members, as ever, devoted an
> enormous amount of energy and care in the lead up to and during the event,
> and demonstrated their deep understanding of the challenges and
> opportunities in our movement. We are extremely grateful for all their
> effort. In short, the harmonization sprint underlined the high level of
> work and dedication every single working group member has put into getting
> the movement strategy to its current point, and the passion to shape the
> future of the diverse and inclusive movement we envision.
> We have valuable lessons to take from this event and incorporate into the
> overall process and the next steps. We will share these with you all as
> soon as possible. If you have questions in the meantime, please feel free
> to reach out to me.
> Best regards,
> Nicole
