Wikimedia Foundation elections/2022/Peer support for potential candidates

Peer support for potential candidates is a process in preparation for Wikimedia Foundation elections/2022.

As an adjunct to the Call for Candidates, this informal preliminary process is meant to help connect potential candidates considering a run to Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees members (current and former), and possibly also other categories with wide movement experience, who can provide mentorship and peer support during a one-on-one consultation session. This idea was initially proposed during the 2021 elections, and seeks to foster of "culture of invitation" so that potential candidates have someone helpful to talk to before they might choose to register officially as candidates.

Interested Board of Trusteees members (current and former)Edit

How to participateEdit

If you wish to participate as a candidate or potential candidate, sign up for a 20-minute one-on-one consultation session with the mentor of your choice.

Just list your username and your preferred mentor of choice from the list above.

For example, *I would like to have a mentorship session with Aaaaa.--~~~~
