Monthly reportsEdit

There are 4 ways that you can get involvedEdit


Host a Strategy SalonEdit

Strategy Salons are an opportunity for recognized Wikimedia affiliates to host in-person gatherings to discuss movement strategy. The goal of these events is to allow affiliate leaders to bring together a broad mix of affiliate members who live within their local area to have deeper conversations about one or two strategy themes that are of interest to them. Our hope is that these events will not only allow for meaningful and creative discussions about our future, but to also offer affiliates opportunities to strengthen relationships and deepen engagement with their members.

Read more about Strategy Salons. Applications from affiliates for dedicated grants are due May 31st.


Join existing discussionsEdit

Within your group or language community. Community Strategy Liaisons have been hired to lead conversations on-wiki and in social media channels for our language communities in Mandarin, Hindi, Arabic, German, Portuguese, French, and Spanish. Meanwhile, volunteer Organizational Strategy Liaisons are leading conversations within organized groups on movement strategy.

Conversations will take place in a number of languages, and you can find out more on the preferred channels of your organized group or language community. You can also share your ideas on the Discussion pages for the scoping documents prepared by the Working Groups:
