Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees/Call for feedback: Board of Trustees elections/ta
|The Movement Strategy and Governance team supported a Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees selection processes from 10 January to 16 February 2022. The problem statement and key questions explored in this Call are below.|
தீர்க்கப்பட வேண்டிய பிரச்சினை
The Wikimedia Foundation and the movement have grown over the past ten years, and the Board has largely remained the same in structure and process. In the 2019 governance review, capacity, performance, and lack of representation of the movement’s diversity were noted as concerns.
In 2021, some of these concerns were discussed during the Call for Feedback: Community Board seats. The 2021 Board of Trustees election included updated practices to start to address the concerns listed above. Two additional seats were added to address the Board’s capacity needs. Single transferable voting was used to improve the opportunity for representation of the movement’s diversity. The trustees shared their skills and asked candidates to share theirs to inform voters. Broad and multilingual outreach sought out candidates and voters in many communities on many communication channels.
During this 2022 Call for Feedback we hope to identify additional solutions to reflect the diversity of the movement on the Board. Additionally, we want to use this opportunity to learn from the community about engaging with candidates during the election process.
பின்னூட்ட வடிவமைப்பிற்கான அழைப்பு
With this Call for Feedback, we are taking a different approach that incorporates community feedback from the 2021 process. Instead of leading with proposals, the Call is framed around key questions. The intention is to inspire collective conversation and collaborative proposal development.
Thank you for taking the time to participate in this Call for Feedback and helping to form a more diverse and better performing Board of Trustees.
Movement Strategy and Governance staff are able to support conversations in many languages. Discussions are welcome in any language, although we may need to rely on volunteer translators to help summarize languages we do not have on staff. You can find links to conversations in many languages in a table on the Discuss Key Questions page. You can find conversation on the Telegram Board selection chat. Contact a facilitator in your region to plan a community conversation or provide feedback.
