Community Resilience & Sustainability office hour[edit]

My name is Maggie Dennis. I am the Vice President of Community Resilience & Sustainability, and I am hosting another Community Resilience & Sustainability Office Hour on Thursday, December 10, 2020 at 20:00 UTC. I work directly under the General Counsel of the Wikimedia Foundation, Amanda Keton, who hopes to join us as well. Topics within scope for this call include Trust and Safety (and the Universal Code of Conduct, with a second phase launching in January), Community Development, and Human Rights. This is not a presentation; it is an open invitation to come with your questions or feedback and talk!

This call will be streamed and available on demand on YouTube.

We will host this office hour on Zoom, [1] taking questions from the Zoom chat, Telegram, IRC, and YouTube, as well as collecting them in advance over email.[2]

We will be taking notes to go alongside the video recording. I will be fielding questions from Wikimedians in good standing (that is, not Foundation or community banned) and will follow up with anything I can't get to during the meeting in writing after the call.

The caveats from before remain in place, which I will repeat for convenience:

  • I can't and won't discuss specific Trust & Safety cases. Instead, I can discuss Trust & Safety protocols and practices and approaches.
  • I can talk civilly about our work even if you disagree with me or I disagree with you. I will not respond to comments or questions that are disrespectful to me, to my colleagues, or to anyone in our communities. I won't compromise on this.

You can read the notes from our two previous calls here (June 2020) and here (October 2020)

[1] If you want to participate verbally, please ask for the link at answers(_AT_)wikimedia.org, at least an hour in advance of the meeting's start (please use "Office hour" as the subject line).
[2] Email questions to answers(_AT_)wikimedia.org with "Office hours" in the subject line.

I hope to see you there. --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 13:58, 4 December 2020 (UTC)Reply

@Mdennis (WMF): Hi! Since it's been about a quarter, do you happen to know when the next office hours would be? If it hasn't been scheduled yet, I would completely understand – just trying to make sure I don't miss it! KevinL (aka L235 · t) 05:52, 26 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
@L235: Hi, KevinL. :) It hasn't been scheduled yet - we had planned to do it in March, but there have been a fair amount of other things on my plate to coordinate, so I pushed it out a bit. (Mainly, I wanted to understand what was happening with Moment Strategy.) I like to give people at least two weeks notice, but it takes some time to make sure that I have the staff we need to coordinate these things. I'm waiting to hear now if the 17th or 24th of April would work. I was asked to try to host it on a weekend this time, so aiming towards one of those! --Maggie Dennis (WMF) (talk) 17:11, 30 March 2021 (UTC)Reply
