Phase 1 of the Movement Strategy Process is over. We have moved on and a next stage of the Process is undergoing. If you want to stay informed, add the page Strategy/Wikimedia movement/2018-20 to your watchlist.
Catch up on the process
There were three cycles of discussions. The first cycle ended on April 18, 2017. The second ended on June, 12. The third cycle ended on July, 31.
You can now read the text of the strategic direction that emerged through this process. If you agree that this is the right way for the Wikimedia Movement to move forward, you are invited to endorse it.

About the audiences in the conversation (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" by audience. The main participation tracks are Organized Groups and Individual Contributors. The third audience is for those not in our movement conversation, namely readers, experts, and partners. We are currently doing both research and interviews to better understand their inputs. Learn more here (link coming soon).
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.
This group includes individual contributors, such as editors, curators, and volunteer developers, across different languages and Wikimedia projects.
Formerly tracks C and D
We are doing research to better understand the voices that aren’t part of our movement discussions: readers, experts, and partners. To ensure a complete picture, we are engaging in research as well as conducting interviews and hosting small gatherings with these people. This group includes existing and new readers of our projects, and existing and potential partners, in countries or languages where we are both well-known (formerly track C) and where we are much less known (formerly track D).
The core strategy team has prepared a process in collaboration with a Steering Committee of long-time volunteer Wikimedians.
Many groups of people from across the movement are working together to organize the strategy process (and you can be one of them!)
