Committee Support provides essential staff support for movement committees and groups to help sustain movement governance and health. The team is part of the Community Resilience and Sustainability area of the Wikimedia Foundation Legal department.

What we do[edit]

The Committee Support team fosters collaboration between movement groups and supporting organizations to achieve shared goals. The objectives of the team are to ensure volunteers who support the Wikimedia movement through these groups can experience healthy engagements, function effectively, and maintain confidence in their ability to receive and provide necessary support.

By coordinating with other teams in the Foundation, the team provides various support to several movement groups including, but not limited to:

The team also helps coordinate support to and from movement groups and the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees, especially Community Affairs Committee liaisons. The team looks ahead to anticipate the needs of movement committees and groups that may exist in the future and how to help these groups coordinate with existing groups.
