Universal Code of Conduct/Functionary consultations/June and July 2021

Universal Code of Conduct


The Universal Code of Conduct's enforcement pathways will need structure. The purpose of these meetings are for users who are advanced rights holders on wikis or are active across the global space to get together and discuss three main areas related to structure: what can these potential structures look like, how can we build them to be representative and inclusive, and where do we begin. Each meeting will last around two hours, and will largely consist of breakout groups to talk about these points and then report back to each other and share ideas. After the series of meetings, we'll organize next steps to identify which ideas we want to pursue and how to do it together.

Post-meeting summaryEdit

The meetings were lightly attended but had useful conversations. Part of the meetings overlapped with global movement strategy conversations, and meeting attendees are also invested in those discussions. There was mainly talk about local processes in handling and reporting harassment and related user conduct issues on-wiki, gathering use cases for specific communities and groups that may need to adjust or create new processes to deal with UCoC related complaints. There were questions and answers about the role of community in creating and owning these processes, and how much time it will take to accomplish these goals. Attendees also shared and learned about how different communities are handing things already, and what can be emulated in other places.

There will be another round of discussions after the publication of the UCoC enforcement draft. The next round of meetings will push for heavier attendance and participation as the members of the groups have some something of substance to discuss and work with, having a draft available.

Information about signing upEdit

If you are a member of more than one group and can attend multiple meetings, you're encouraged to sign up for as many as you qualify for. Each meeting is meant to gather information for what that particular group might want or need from the UCoC, and attending multiple meetings will provide the opportunity to share multiple perspectives if you participate in more than one area.

Former rights holders in good standing with their communities are welcome to join with their former groups as invited.
