Recommendation 6: A single point of entry for partners to engage with Wikimedia[edit]

Q 1 What is your Recommendation?[edit]

That an "easy to use and to navigate" access-point for potential partners who are interested in reaching out to us is considered.  

Q 2-1 What assumptions are you making about the future context that led you to make this Recommendation?[edit]

That partners will continue to engage with Wikimedia independently and without solicitation, and that simplifying this will be useful.

Q 2-2 What is your thinking and logic behind this recommendation?[edit]

Currently partners find us difficult to interact with and find a point of entry, a single platform would help focus partnerships and give them a way of interacting with our movement.

It would also enable us to focus on a multilingual approach, and standardise some of our responses to partnerships.

Q 3-1 What will change because of the Recommendation?[edit]

As opposed to organic relationships based on a range of contacts, partners would be able to interact with Wikimedia in a more formal, consistent way.

Q 5 How does this Recommendation relate to the current structural reality?[edit]

Currently partner relationships are somewhat disconnected. Different communities have different approaches or have trouble making themselves known to willing partners.
