Movement Charter Drafting Committee Candidacy - additional information
I am reaching out to you in relation to the Movement Charter Drafting Committee candidacy. The main reason for writing this letter is related to ensuring that your profile will be well presented during the upcoming election and selection process.
Request in short:
- Please send us information to strategy2030wikimedia.org regarding your “main wiki project” and expertise by naming the project and choosing 3 areas of competency from the respective matrix. We kindly ask you to send this information by October 3, 2021.
- Add your proposals for “election compass” statements and be prepared to answer a survey with the upvoted statements.
To ensure diversity of the Movement Charter Drafting Committee, there is a limitation in the election process that a maximum of 2 people from the same wiki project can be elected. As a result, we would kindly ask you to define your one main wiki project by writing to strategy2030wikimedia.org
In some discussions with the community members it has been highlighted that while it is easier to assess the diversity of the candidates, it is more difficult to understand the expertise and competencies they have. As a result, we would kindly ask you to reflect on this and choose up to 3 top competencies that you would bring to the committee from the 14 mentioned in the expertise matrix.
We kindly ask you to send your response to email@example.com and we will add it for you. The reason for this is that we are locking the page for translations and trying to avoid any editing conflicts. I hope it makes sense.
As you might have read on other channels, we are also setting up an election compass for people to navigate 73 candidacies for the committee. It works like this: You will see statements that we have asked the candidates to position themselves to (support, neutral, oppose; and some lines of reasoning). The tool asks you to position yourself to these statements. At the end, you will see who of the candidates is closest to you.
This will help to highlight your positioning regarding the key matters to be tackled in the Movement Charter and support people in making an informed decision in the election and selection process. You can consult and add your own thoughts on the statement collection page. If you want to understand what the tool will look like, see the prototype on Toolforge.
There is no action needed from you know, but we will come back to you with a survey in about 10 days time and would kindly ask you to fill it to be well presented in this compass. We truly believe that it is a good way to support people in making sense of all the nominations and hope you see it as an interesting and beneficial approach.
Closing and translating candidate statements
We are closing the candidate page on meta to manage the translations. As a result, no further edits to your statements can be made.
