Partnerships are an important method of increasing our impact. Partnerships in Wikimedia have an unusual aspect (for example, in that there's no "general manager" on the Wikipedia side of the partnership), but also are just like other partnerships between organizations.

In this presentation, several techniques and best practices will be explained, with examples, to help interested Wikimedians identify and build a partnership for the community.

What will attendees take away from this session?
  1. understanding of the dynamics of partnerships in the Wikimedia context
  2. how to identify desired partnerships and partners
  3. how to prepare for prospective partnership meetings
  4. how to negotiate partnerships
