How have you been able to empower people to make their voices heard? In some occasion i like create some small talk with another people. Talking to the person who want to listen to you is the best motivation you can have.
Sometimes in professional situations, there are personality conflicts. Explain how you remain productive even with personality conflicts. When i have some conflict in my work, i always choose to calm down myself. I just don't wanna make a mess in my head.
Strategic Thinking
In your opinion, how can the U4C be a positive influence in the Wikimedia movement? U4C can be a standart of how a Wikimedian should do or don't and U4C also responsible in how Wikimedia ecosystem work then.
How would you help the Universal Code of Conduct develop and improve over time? I hope i can help UCoC more suitable for every Wikimedian in the World.
