Type of submission (Please choose one)[edit]

  • Open discussion (many-to-many)


Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees (BoT) started discussions about things like Transparency and Communication, Strategy / WMF identity, Movement Affiliations, Finance, Human Resources, Board composition during Wikimania (see WMF Board discussions). The goal of this session is to continue the discussions and engage more people, as the BoT or WMF cannot resolve these issues on their own. Especially topics like:

  • Transparency and Communication
  • Strategy / WMF identity
  • Movement Affiliations

Expected outcomes[edit]

  • Ideas and issues discussed would be published on Meta and discussed with Board governance committee (or any other relevant committee) and the Board itself

Duration (without Q&A)[edit]

90 minutes

Specific requirements[edit]

I need a facilitator and somebody taking notes

Slides or further information[edit]

I shall prepare slides :)
