The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a proposed forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Gender gap/International WomensdayEdit

Hi! I just noticed your edit on this page, and have a few comments:

  • You say you will be organising events for every one all over de world? Will you be creating nation specific Wikipedia lists for instance? I.e. artists from Iran, of artists from Myanmar? That would define the countries.
  • Same comment about languages: we have Wikipedia's in over 300 languages, will you be able to provide a translation of the banner, and also a landing page in the corresponding language? (As the page states: Landing page for initiatives around the 8th of March 2021: per project and language. Banners will be on from 1-10 March.)
  • I realise that your event might have a larger time span: the banner I am organising from this page will only run 1-10 March, because the guidelines say banners should be as unobtrusive as possible.

Hope this is okay! Ciell (talk) 23:23, 3 February 2021 (UTC)

Hi Ciell! Thanks for this feedback. See responses to your queries below:
You say you will be organising events for every one all over de world? Will you be creating nation specific Wikipedia lists for instance? I.e. artists from Iran, of artists from Myanmar? That would define the countries.
  • No, but the campaign is open for anyone to organize. The list of events is constantly growing. Given that, what do you think is the most appropriate answer for this table?
Same comment about languages: we have Wikipedia's in over 300 languages, will you be able to provide a translation of the banner, and also a landing page in the corresponding language? (As the page states: Landing page for initiatives around the 8th of March 2021: per project and language. Banners will be on from 1-10 March.)
  • Same as above, the list of events is constantly growing. Given that, what do you think is the most appropriate answer for this table?
I realise that your event might have a larger time span: the banner I am organising from this page will only run 1-10 March, because the guidelines say banners should be as unobtrusive as possible.
  • That’s fine! We’re grateful to be included in this banner you’re organizing. People can organize around this outlined time and beyond. Would it be helpful for us to add a line for each event that we have in this time frame?
Looking forward to your guidance. --Kiraface (talk) 20:42, 9 February 2021 (UTC)
I'll be on the WMF Community Events call Thursday 11th (tomorrow), and will propose that all projects will create a sub-landing page like this one, where the can refer people to the events they will be organising, and can indicate the specific languages for there events. If you can, you could join: the call is at 18:00 UTC. I'm absolutely open for comments and more idea's! Ciell (talk) 19:12, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, Ciell (talk)! Yes, I can be on that call! Can you share the call information/point me in the right direction? --Kiraface (talk) 20:07, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
Here you go! Ciell (talk) 20:15, 10 February 2021 (UTC)
Many thanks, Ciell! See you there. --Kiraface (talk) 20:17, 10 February 2021 (UTC)

Sunday February 21 Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network meetingEdit

 
We are a mosiac.

The Strategic Wikimedia Affiliates Network (SWAN) is a developing forum for all Wikimedia movement affiliates to share ideas on the Wikimedia 2030 strategy process. It expands on the model of the All-Affiliates Brand Meeting to help lay some of the groundwork for a future Global Council.

Following up on the August, September, October, November, and January SWAN meetings and June's All-Affiliates Brand Meeting, as well as strategic and outreach topics of mutual concern to all affiliates, this month we are meeting on Sunday February 21, and you are all invited to RSVP here.

To help set priorities for the SWAN agenda, and also to help manage which global conversations should be a focus in general, we have set up and invite everyone to participate at this SWAN priorities form.

Possible topics include Community Board seats, Interim Global Council, Strategy prioritization follow-up events, Branding, Universal Code of Conduct, Grant strategy, and WMF CEO search. That is a lot of things, which are most important to cover in our upcoming SWAN meeting?

Following the regular call, in SWAN after hours: Wikimedia Meet Jitsi social event with brainstorming for possible Nano Charter ideas, plus any other topics.
