WikiForHumanRights CampaignEdit

Hello, Please when is your next meeting. Will kindly want to know if it's possible to introduce the #WikiForHumanRights Campaign in one of your meetings? Either this month or next month. We want to encourage and support more local organizers. If this is possible we will be happy that you include us in your program for February 154.160.7.97 14:53, 10 January 2022 (UTC)

Desktop Improvements update and Office Hours invitationEdit

It's not related to the governance affairs, but perhaps some of you would be interested: Desktop Improvements update and Office Hours invitation. SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 05:56, 25 January 2022 (UTC)

Next SWAN meeting for February 27Edit

The plan is to schedule the next SWAN meeting for February 27. This meeting would follow approximately the same timeframe as before, being two sessions on the same Sunday to accommodate a diversity of time zones.--Pharos (talk) 18:39, 17 February 2022 (UTC)

@Pharos: Is it truth or a lie? If true, then it would be appropriate to edit the content of SWAN. Dušan Kreheľ (talk) 18:50, 17 February 2022 (UTC)
@Dušan Kreheľ It is the truth, though I have now corrected it to be clear that this will be Sunday February 27. Will start updating the front page of SWAN today.--Pharos (talk) 17:11, 18 February 2022 (UTC)

Does someone record these?Edit

I missed the last one but I thought maybe someone records these and they are archived somewhere? Thanks - Joaquin89uy (talk) 15:00, 2 March 2022 (UTC)

SWAN & Desktop ImprovementsEdit

Hello! I've been wondering if you could add Desktop Improvements to the agenda of the next meeting. I understand that this is not a standard topic for this group. It's a software development project, maybe not strictly related to affiliates' work. But then

  1. It's a major project
  2. The Web team hopes to get it rolled out across all wikis within a few months
  3. We would like to talk to various parts of the movement in advance, particularly because
  4. Some affiliates, esp. the emerging ones, have close connections with online communities in their languages.

What do you think about that? SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 16:20, 8 March 2022 (UTC)

@SGrabarczuk (WMF): Sounds good, just keep in mind the context of the role of affiliates and to share how they can participate.--Pharos (talk) 13:49, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
Good, of course. How much time would we have? SGrabarczuk (WMF) (talk) 14:10, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
@SGrabarczuk (WMF): It would be great if you can present for 10-15 minutes. Also, please send someone to each of the two sessions so that each cohort can get an equitable experience.--Pharos (talk) 15:49, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

Next SWAN meeting for April 3Edit

The plan is to schedule the next SWAN meeting for April 3. This meeting would follow approximately the same timeframe as before, being two sessions on the same Sunday to accommodate a diversity of time zones.--Pharos (talk) 17:53, 16 March 2022 (UTC)

Suggested agenda items
  • @CCasares (WMF) and Xeno (WMF): Also, we would ask you to send someone to each of the two sessions, so that each cohort can be fully a part of the process.--Pharos (talk) 16:02, 1 April 2022 (UTC)

First call in 30 minutes (April)Edit

Our first call is in 30 minutes, hope to see you then, or at the second call!--Pharos (talk) 02:30, 3 April 2022 (UTC)

Human Rights Policy Community ConversationEdit

Hello SWAN members! As I mentioned during the 3 April SWAN meeting, the Global Advocacy team has organized a series of regional community conversation events to receive input from community members on the implementation of the Human Rights Policy. I'm excited to let you know that we have scheduled these events, which you can learn more about here. Below is some additional information about these events:

What is the outcome of these sessions? We will do two things with the information that is shared via these conversations and other, smaller focus groups. (1) We will share a summary of our findings by publishing them on Meta, in a Diff blog, and (hopefully!) presenting them at Wikimania. (2) Feedback and recommendations will shape the implementation process of the Human Rights Policy.

Where can you learn more about these calls and the Human Rights Policy? You can learn more about the conversion format, types of questions that will guide the conversation, as well as the Human Rights Policy [here].

What if you can’t join any of these conversations? If you are interested but cannot attend the calls you can still share your experiences via a survey that will soon be available.

When are these conversations occurring?
