Movement Strategy and Governance (MSG) team supports the participation of Wikimedia communities and affiliates in the Movement Strategy initiatives. We also support major policy and governance matters, such as the Terms of Use, Universal Code of Conduct and Board of Trustees elections.

Who we are

The MSG team belongs to the Community Resilience and Sustainability team of Wikimedia Foundation's Legal Department. The MSG team includes the Movement Strategy core team as well as a number of facilitators specializing in different wiki projects, languages and regions. Facilitators connect volunteers, communities and affiliates with initiatives to gather feedback, hear their thoughts and appreciate their concerns. Our goal is to achieve a common understanding and agreement of how an initiative can be implemented.

Learn more about the team on the team page.

  2. Encouraging robust input of both established and at least 30 emerging communities
  3. Providing strategic access to Movement Strategy implementation grants for community groups and individuals, in cooperation with the Community Resources team.
