The Hubs Dialogue is a series of meetings with Wikimedians who are planning future hubs around the world that was used to produce a findings summary. The results will be discussed at the Hubs Global Conversations on 12 March 2022, along with the next steps in launching hubs
The Dialogue was organized by the Wikimedia Foundation's Movement Strategy and Governance Team. The goal of the 'Hubs Dialogue' is to help understand the perspective, needs, and expectations of those working on hubs.
- Reconnect with everyone working on hubs.
- Meet them in their diverse contexts.
- Understand their perspective, their needs, and their expectations.
- Consolidate a report to surface alignment and map out differences.
If you are working on a hub or planning it (see: the active hubs), and you would like to join the conversation, please contact the Movement Strategy and Governance Team using the following email address:
