Code de conduite universel

Phase 2

The Universal Code of Conduct Drafting committee for phase 2 (UCoCDC 2 or “the committee”) is a group of Wikimedians brought together with the purpose of writing the draft for enforcement guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct for Board ratification as requested in the Board statement on community culture 2020. The committee will consist of volunteer movement members brought in through an open application process, affiliate staff volunteering for it and qualified Foundation staff based on specific skills (including legal experience, diversity & inclusion experience, and translatability expertise). Members will be selected by the Vice President of Community Resilience and Sustainability of the Wikimedia Foundation. Volunteer members for the committee will be respected community members with at least two of the following skills or traits:

* expérience dans la rédaction de politiques
  • expérience dans l'application des règles et politiques actuelles des projets Wikimedia
  • expérience dans la coopération en ligne
  • empathie
  • expérience de collaboration internationale
  • participation à des processus de décisions

Ils seront autant que possible sélectionnés pour représenter également la diversité de notre mouvement en ce qui concerne les langues parlées, la géographie, le sexe, l'âge, la taille du projet de leur wiki d'accueil et leurs rôles au sein du mouvement Wikimedia. S'appuyant sur les recommandations détaillées faites par le groupe de travail sur la stratégie du mouvement s'intéressant à la santé communautaire, le Comité analysera les commentaires provenant des communautés wikimédiennes, des groupes affiliés et des officiers sur leurs besoins et leurs souhaits pour l'application et l'application de la politique. Les travaux seront menés à travers une structure facilitante pour éviter les impasses et maintenir la concentration. Une ou des personnes seront sélectionnées selon leurs compétences rédactionnelles pour faire la rédaction proprement dite en fonction des contributions du groupe. Une personne facilitante fournira cette structure, mènera les efforts en ce sens et fournira des ressources additionnelles selon les besoins.

Phase 2 des appels pour les applications

Phase 2 drafting committee members

We are pleased to announce that the Universal Code of Conduct drafting committee for phase 2 has been assembled. We had 35 volunteers apply, either by publicly signing up on the Meta page, or by sending an email. Volunteers from at least 20 different countries applied, identifying themselves as working on 26 different wikimedia projects. There was a wide range of roles applicants held within the movement as well as a wide range of experiences on wiki and skills in policy making outside the movement. It was once again very hard to narrow down from this diverse and extremely qualified pool of applicants.

We feel lucky that we could choose from such a broad and exciting candidate pool and form a committee we think will collaborate with one another effectively and create the best possible enforcement guidelines for the Universal Code of Conduct for the Wikimedia movement.

The new committee is a group of people that includes Wikimedians from 9 different countries and who edit our projects in more than 11 different languages. Collectively they hold sysop roles on 13 different projects and 11 higher functionary roles, including two global sysops and 2 sitting arbitrators on different projects. Unfortunately no steward or former steward applied as a volunteer, but we were able to use one of the Foundation staff slots to appoint a member who was a steward until recently. Several members of the committee have been editing since 2008, we have a member who helped organize Wikimania 2007, and we also have someone who joined the Wikimedia movement only in 2021. Collectively the committee members have edited our projects more than 395,000 times with their volunteer accounts. The committee also includes founding and board members of affiliates of different sizes, a sitting AffCom member and several members of the OTRS-Team.

Nous sommes extrêmement reconnaissants à tous ceux qui se sont portés volontaires et certainement à ceux qui ont accepté la responsabilité de produire ce premier document. Il sera le point de départ inspirant à partir duquel les processus et les stratégies d'application évolueront au fil du temps. Nous savons qu'il y aura de nombreuses conversations difficiles au sein du comité et au-delà, et nous espérons que toutes les personnes intéressées participeront à notre travail commun pour essayer de créer des systèmes équitables pour tous.

The ideal drafting committee paradox - a short essay

Essay by CSteigenberger (WMF)

In an ideal world, the drafting committee would represent the full diversity of our movement and all members would have important insights into how policies are applied successfully on different Wikimedia projects, but also elsewhere in the world. It would have members who have held extended rights for a long time, sat on ArbComs and other committees, as well as newcomers to our projects. Some of its members would be Wikimedians who have been targeted by harassers, others would be people who have resolved incidents around harassment successfully. There would also be Wikimedians who have falsely been accused of harassment. On the committee we would see Wikimedians from different projects from all around the world. Young Wikimedians, old Wikimedians, women, men, non-binary Wikimedians, Wikimedians with different skin tones, different religious backgrounds, working in different topic areas and more.

All those people would interact with each other respectfully and in harmony, making room for the viewpoints of others but also bringing forward their own insights and ideas. They would be flexible in their scheduling and accommodating the needs of other committee members. They would be solution focused and effective in creating a text in English that is easily translatable. They would enjoy creating guidelines for enforcement, taking into account existing community processes and making sure they are in compliance with legal requirements the Wikimedia Foundation has to fulfill.

At the same time this ideal committee would be made up of ordinary, real people, just like you. People who might have work obligations, families, social lives and a wide variety of interests outside the Wikimedia movement and who also need time to sleep, to rest and to do lots of things not connected to the UCoC. People with a limited understanding of the complexity of the task and people with limited energy. People who make mistakes, create misunderstandings, might be moody or even difficult at times and might get sick or experience other unexpected problems.

It will take people with traits on both sides of this paradox to create the best possible drafting committee. We want to encourage you to think about what parts of this ideal committee describe you best and to let us know about them!

Phase 1

Phase 1 Drafting committee recruiting and meeting notes

Le comité de rédaction du Code de conduite universel (anglais: UCoCDC ou «le comité») est un groupe de wikimédiens réunis dans le but de finaliser le projet de code de conduite universel d'ici le 30 août 2020, pour ratification par le Conseil, comme demandé dans la déclaration du conseil d'administration sur la culture communautaire 2020. Le comité sera composé de membres bénévoles du mouvement recrutés par le biais d'un processus de candidature ouvert et d'un personnel de la Fondation qualifié sur la base de compétences spécifiques (y compris l'expérience juridique, l'expérience de la diversité et de l'inclusion, et l'expertise en matière de traduction). Les membres seront sélectionnés par Mdennis (vice présidente du Community Resilience & Sustainability, Wikimedia Foundation). Les membres bénévoles du comité seront des membres respectés de la communauté possédant au moins deux des compétences ou traits suivants:

  • expérience en rédaction de politiques
  • expérience de la coopération en ligne
  • empathie
  • expérience de collaboration dans une équipe internationale
  • prise de décision participative

Ils seront autant que possible sélectionnés pour représenter également la diversité de notre mouvement en ce qui concerne les langues parlées, la géographie, le sexe, l'âge, la taille du projet de leur wiki d'accueil et leurs rôles au sein du mouvement Wikimédia. S'appuyant sur les Recommandations détaillées faites par le groupe de travail sur la stratégie du mouvement s'intéressant à la santé communautaire, le Comité utilisera le Pacte du contributeur comme base de référence - et intégrera les commentaires recueillis le cas échéant. Les travaux seront menés à travers une structure facilitée pour éviter les impasses et maintenir la concentration. Une ou deux personnes seront sélectionnées pour leurs compétences en rédaction pour faire la rédaction proprement dite en fonction des contributions du groupe. Une équipe dédiée de la Fondation, Community Development, fournira cette structure, conduira la facilitation et fournira des ressources supplémentaires au besoin.

Phase 1 drafting committee members

We are happy to announce that the Universal Code of Conduct drafting committee has been assembled. We had 26 volunteers apply, either by publicly signing up on the Meta page, or by sending an email. Volunteers from 18 different countries applied, speaking 11 different languages.

We had Wikimedian applicants with different levels of experience on-wiki, from someone who started editing only last year to people who have been editing for more than 18 years and/or have more than 300,000 edits. Applicants held a variety of different roles within the movement, and also informed us about interesting and relevant experiences in their real-life careers. It was very hard to narrow down from this diverse and extremely qualified pool of applicants.

For the final selection, two aspects guided the decision making - we want a committee that at the one hand will represent important parts of the movement. Prolific editors as well as Wikimedians whose strength is more in organizing events, Wikimedians from different demographics, contributors from small and large wikis, and people holding different roles within the movement. We also wanted a group of people who will collaborate with one another effectively and create the best possible Universal Code of Conduct for the Wikimedia movement. Experience has taught us that committees that are too large find it difficult to work effectively, so we decided to cap the number of seats to 6 volunteer seats and 3 staff seats. Please note that more chances for engagement are coming up during the community draft review period starting from August 24.

Phase 1 volunteers

  • Civvì
  • ProtoplasmaKid - reserve member, joined Aug. 18 (Founder Wikimedia Mexico chapter)
    • masti member stepped down
  • RachelWex (St. Cloud State University, US, associate professor)
  • Sami Mlouhi (President Wikimedia Tunisia User Group, Secretary Wikimedia Affiliates Committee)
  • Uzoma (Wikimedia Incubator)

Phase 1 staff members

Phase 1 advisory roles

The Universal Code of Conduct Drafting committee is being supported by Wikimedia Foundation staff in terms of logistics and coordination, but also from community members offering insights and draft feedback through Advisory roles. They provided insights about specific processes, such as running content drives, starting new editing communities, keeping real-life events safe, and serving on movement committees. Advisory roles were selected from interested parties who offered some of these relevant experiences during the application period for the Drafting Committee.

How do Advisory members take part in the process?

Advisory members will be supported by staff to provide focused insights, data, and experiences to the Drafting Committee through interviews, written briefs, and informational video call sessions. Their input will also inform Phase 2 of the UCoC project.

Phase 1 advisory members

  • ANKAN, advisor providing insights from the perspective of a chapter in South Asia.
  • Bobbyshabangu, advisor providing insights into the situation of African minority language communities and from the perspective of an African chapter.
  • Joy sagar Murmu, advisor providing insights into the situation of a minority language community with a relatively new wiki.
  • Nattes à chat, advisor providing insights into the situation for female organizers and women editing the projects.
  • Protoplasmakid, advisor providing insights into Latin American communities and connections between behavioural issues and Human Rights issues. Protoplasmakid stepped up to the drafting committee on Aug 18.
  • RFarrand (WMF), advisor providing insights about behavioural issues at events and her experience with the application of relevant existing policies.
