About the four tracks

There are many different groups in our movement, who engage with information in different ways. In order to understand their needs and perspectives better, the core team has organized "tracks" of research and dialogue with different audiences. You may identify as belonging to several groups and you are welcome to participate in more than one track.


Organized groups

This group includes Wikimedia movement affiliates, organized movement committees including the Funds Dissemination Committee and Affiliations Committee, staff members at the Wikimedia Foundation, the Foundation Board of Trustees, and other organized or semi-organized groups that help support the movement.


Individual contributors

This group includes individual contributors, such as editors, curators, and volunteer developers, across different languages and Wikimedia projects.


Higher awareness regions

This group includes existing and new readers of our projects, and existing and potential partners, in countries or languages where we are well-known (and have high reach in terms of awareness and usage).


Lower awareness regions

This group includes existing and new readers of our projects, and existing and potential partners, in countries or languages where we are not well-known (and have limited reach in terms of awareness and usage).


The process

WMF-Agora-Language selection-crop 3492D1.svg The core strategy team has prepared a process in collaboration with a Steering Committee of long-time volunteer Wikimedians.
