Conversational Report
Wikimedia Colombia - 22 February 2021



The objective of the meeting was to talk to members of Wikimedia Colombia, who primarily edit on the Spanish language projects, to collect their thoughts, feedback and questions, on the proposed ideas for candidates for community-sourced seats on the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees.

Topics and NotesEdit

The community members were introduced the rationale behind the current Call for Feedback and the main discussion that have happened in the last two weeks in meta, the Office Hours and the Telegram chat.

Feedback on specific ideasEdit

  • Some volunteers expressed the desired to have a gender equality quota in the upcoming board elections.
Regional seatsEdit
  • Some volunteers expressed that it would be desired to have regional representation in the board, but understands the challenges behind the regional coordination
  • The feeling of the volunteers is that there is a problem of tutoring (it is not known what the board does) and of representativeness, not knowing what to say about the election process because they not have much time in the movement.
