Community Engagement Insights/2016-17 Report/Question 341-GR09

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Question 341 (GR09)[edit]

The Wikimedia Foundation is interested in more partnerships with companies in the private sector. To become a partner, companies must share the Foundation's values, mission, and ethics. Companies must also have strong corporate social responsibility efforts supporting education.

These companies often provide services to underserved segments of the population where they operate. For example, the companies build schools, provide connectivity or devices, or promote certain content. The Foundation could work with new partners to create new programs that aim to increase the reach of Wikimedia projects.

To what extent do you support or oppose this kind of partnership?
