Hi everyone,

We’ve got lots of news to share from movement strategy: The first version
of the movement strategy document is almost ready, and we’ll be starting a
new round of community conversations.

== First version of the movement strategy document coming next week ==
The writers have been hard at work developing the first version of the
movement strategy document. A key part of this has been turning the 89
recommendations produced by the nine working groups into one coherent set
and consolidating the work into 13 recommendations. Alongside this, the
document also features principles that guide the recommendations and a
narrative of change that summarizes how the recommendations fit together
and contribute to helping our Movement align with our strategic direction.

There has been a high level of activity in the last few weeks, both by the
writers and the community strategy liaisons, to create a set of
recommendations that encompasses the work of the working groups and the
broad community input received throughout the process. They’ve gone above
and beyond what was asked of them, and I would like to thank them
wholeheartedly for the huge effort they’ve invested into this work and for
their inspiring dedication to making this happen.

== Community conversations begin next week ==
A new round of community conversations around this document will begin next
week. We encourage people from across our Movement – members of online
communities, affiliates, boards, WMF staff – to review the recommendations
and share what these might mean for their community, organization, or
context. With this round, we are looking to come to a common understanding
that the recommendations enable us to move forward in our strategic

Conversations will be held on Meta [1], on various language wikis, on
social media, and on your community’s other preferred channels. They will
run until the first week of March. After that, the core team will take one
week to summarize all community input and reflect it back in a short,
public report. The community will then have one week to suggest changes to
the posted summary so that it accurately reflects their viewpoints.
Community Strategy Liaisons will help facilitate conversations in Arabic,
French, German, Hindi, Portuguese, and Spanish. There will also be targeted
support for English speaking communities. Finally, Strategy Liaisons from
affiliates and online language communities will also receive support for
facilitating conversations on their own channels.

If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out. Looking forward
to hearing from you soon.

Best wishes,
