All-Affiliates Brand Meeting

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

All Wikimedia affiliates are invited to join an urgent meeting on the Brand Project in two sessions on Sunday June 21, 2020 (Saturday evening for North/South America), regarding the most recent developments. This has been proposed and discussed on the "Wiki User Groups Affiliates" Telegram channel.



To be discussed include:

  • The Branding presentation and survey (for affiliates and individuals) that was launched June 16 and all responses are due by June 30
  • A new Wikimedia Foundation executive statement (published June 18) with a new clarification – "We should have been clearer: a rebrand will happen. This has already been decided by the Board."
  • Any issues of common concern the group would like to discuss, or courses of action

The two times are:

  • 03:00 UTC – 2020-06-21 (Asia-Pacific friendly time)
  • 19:00 UTC – 2020-06-21 (Europe-Africa-Americas friendly time)

03:00 UTC participants


Anyone with an affiliation is welcome to join, even if they are not officially a liaison or representative

Volunteer organizers


Who can attend


To be inclusive as possible, all Wikimedia community members are welcome to join.

However since the meeting is oriented towards affiliates and their voice in the process, affiliate liaisons and leadership will be given priority to attend, raise issues and speak to the group. Individuals who are not part of affiliates or are addressing concerns outside the scope of affiliates are welcome to join, though the moderators reserve the right to prioritize topics and voices related to affiliates. Wikimedia Foundation staff are welcome to attend, but the moderators will prioritize community voices and concerns and will direct the conversation towards those goals.
