There have been a few iterations of values, this page tries to give a quick summary of their history.
- The values of the Wikimedia Foundation were first laid down by Anthere in 2008. They eventually settled on this version.
- In 2013, the Board of the Wikimedia Foundation issued the Wikimedia Foundation Guiding Principles describing how the Wikimedia Foundation's Mission and Vision are implemented in its work. This took a few of the concepts used in the values and integrated them in another document.
- In 2016, a discussion took place to update the Wikimedia Foundation's values and yielded the 2017 Wikimedia Foundation staff interaction values.
