In order to “become the essential infrastructure of the ecosystem of free knowledge
,” as a Movement
, we must recognize and invest in current and future leadership development to ensure the Movement’s growth in an equitable
way across all communities. We envision a Movement built by qualified, well-trained, socially- and technically-skilled individuals from different backgrounds that reflect the diversity
of the global communities.
To achieve this goal, we must train, support, and retain Movement leaders who reflect their local communities. Then, we need to actively recruit, encourage, and develop new leaders to ensure diversity and distribution of power in leadership positions. We also need to encourage each community to plan and allocate resources, tools, and information for fostering and developing leadership both at the local and global levels.
