Movement roles project/Movement Partners

< Movement roles project Movement partner is a proposed Wikimedia movement affiliate model. It is not official. No such relationships exist. The idea has existed since the early development of the Wikimedia community, and was codified as a proposal during the Wikimedia movement roles project. A "movement partner" is an organization which is a partner of the Wikimedia movement, but which is not based in the Wikimedia community like the other models of affiliation. One of the motivations for being a Wikimedia affiliate is to enjoy a set of benefits, including permission to use trademarks the the Wikipedia name and logo. There are organizations outside the Wikimedia community, like research institutes, medical organizations, GLAM organizations, universities, and software companies which contribute greatly to the Wikimedia movement and in some way they need a way to describe their affiliation and the nature of those contributions. Giving such organizations a path to become "movement partners" might clarify the relationship between an organization and the Wikimedia community, or set boundaries about how each should related to the other. This would be to the benefit of both parties in the partnership.

Proposed defining characteristics[edit] This page is still in draft mode. Movement Partner candidates currently can apply by posting their interest on the talk page. A final process isn't expected to happen immidiately, but discussions about potential partners can inform that process. Please help improve these draft parameters through edits or suggestions on the talk page.

Centre for Internet and Society - For 1-2 years the Wikimedia Foundation had a second office in India. Instead of maintaining it there, a partnership was established with CIS to support the Wikimedia Community in India. Wiki Ed Foundation - This spin-off of the Wikipedia Education Program manages Wikimedia outreach only in the United States and Canada. It is a separate entity from the Wikimedia Foundation but has assumed the responsibilities formerly held by the Wikimedia Foundation in its region of coverage.
