Every human[edit]

Annual Plan priorities[edit]

  1. 2) Knowledge as a Service - increase reach

How does your program affect annual plan priority?[edit]

They are almost synonymous. By sharing Wikipedia with a significant part of the global population, we move toward achieving our vision for every human to participate in all knowledge—addressing knowledge equity and being of service to the entire world. Women have not achieved global equity in education, historical records, or knowledge production. We intend this program to address both reach and equity, reach through its process and equity through its focus.

Program Goal[edit]

Every human is aware of Wikimedia

Outcome 1
Wikipedia is meaningful to 1 billion women
Output 1
Model the situation: Create a hypothesis about what is meaningful awareness, define a way to measure it, and map our current knowledge of that definition to the target population.
Output 2
Communications strategy—develop a plan: Directly address meaningful awareness of Wikipedia to female-identifying people. This should inform the Wikimedia Foundation messaging platform and all other communications work from executive communications to public narrative to digital media.
High quality, informative announcements that bring our message to growing target audiences. A solid year of appropriate Executive Director appearances with a strong narrative that support Wikimedia’s move toward knowledge equity and knowledge as a service
Preventing risk of poorly explained narratives, and carefully resolving delicate issues (crisis) for the organization. Supporting fundraising efforts through integrated design and messaging for events, emails, banners, and campaigns increasing return for resources spent.
Milestones:
  • Strategic plan
  • Messaging platform
  • Fundraising messaging
  • Annual Report content
Output 3
Analytics: Measuring, evaluating, and iterating on the outcome. Helping support any Foundation staff interested in working toward this outcome through their own programs. Develop project dashboard to quickly review progress.
Milestones:
  • Hire and onboard Analytics Manager
  • Frame project dashboard
  • Quarterly measurements
Output 4
Campaign for change: Execute our plans, optimize based on performance analytics and progress towards project goals, empower partner organizations and allies to take part. Review progress against overall reach goal and among demographics of women involved (e.g. are we only reaching women in one region?). Scale and amplify successful approaches quickly.
Milestones:
  • 1 million women reached
  • 10 million women reached
  • 100 million women reached
  • 1 billion women reached
Output 5
Build a network: Identify ally organizations, develop collaborative efforts, create re-usable tools for partners, scale successful approaches across a wide range.
Milestones:
  • Introduce at Wikimania
  • 10 Wikimedia affiliates involved
  • 10 external partners involved
  • Supporting emerging communities:
    • 10 partners in Africa involved
    • 10 partners in Asia involved
    • 10 partners in Latin America involved
  • 50 partners connected to program (outlined above)
Output 6
Celebrate success to increase participation: Communicate the stories and impact of this initiative, plan for key messaging points throughout the year, invite new participation.
Milestones:
  • December 2018 - Fundraising
  • 15 January 2018 - Wikipedia Day (18 years of Wikipedia + Annual Report)
  • March 2019 - Women’s Month
  • 8 March 2019 - International Women’s Day
  • April 2019 - Wikiconference Berlin
  • June 2019 - Looking forward to equity (e.g. Pride)

Targets[edit]

Women are aware of Wikipedia in a meaningful way
Target
1 billion
Measurement method
  1. TBD and taken into account in output 1 and 3.

Dependencies[edit]

  • We will need to recruit an Analytics Manager, and possibly several other positions.
  • This program would benefit from integration with long-standing Foundation researchers and analysts.
  • Alignment of messaging with fundraising efforts could vastly increase our ability to reach an influential audience.
  • Partnership experts from other departments that want to integrate their work are welcome and appreciated.
