위키미디어 재단 선거/2022년/가맹단체 참여/후보자 질문/질문10

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

새로운 자금 조달 모델에도 불구하고 운동의 자원은 여전히 고르지 않게 분배되어 있으며(즉, 가난한 국가보다 부유한 국가에 더 많은 자금이 있음) 소규모 가맹단체의 조직적 부담은 제출 및 책임 면에서 잘 구성된 가맹단체보다 훨씬 더 큽니다. 가맹단체를 위한 자원 분배 및 자금 조달 프로토콜에서 더 많은 형평성을 보장하기 위해 단기적으로 무엇을 해야 합니까?

이 질문은 2022년 이사회 선거의 가맹단체 대표들이 제안하고 선택했습니다. 질문과 답변의 번역은 운동 전략 포럼에서 찾을 수 있습니다.

The regional grants committees are a great step in the direction of more equity in the distribution of funds. Additionally, the active efforts by the WMF to provide translations into different languages, as well as having ambassadors to the different communities that speak their language is another good step being undertaken. Carrying on with and expanding on the current initiatives, as well as mindfulness of equity when discussing making resourcing or funding decisions should work to get closer to the goal.

Mike Peel (Mike Peel)

I believe that there should be a net increase in funding available for affiliates - both in the global south, but also in European and US regions, to distribute more funding outside of the WMF itself. The new region-based grants committees are a good step forward, although it's important to make sure they are effectively helping affiliates in their regions, particularly considering their different needs and opportunities. WMF should also be helping affiliates self-fundraise (which is important for organisational independence), e.g., by training in how to find local sponsorship for activities, and strategically funding staff positions to support such work.

Gilbert Ndihokubwayo (Gilbert Ndihokubwayo)

In order to ensure more equity in the distribution of resources and in funding protocols for affiliates, in the short term should be resolved the issue of non-inclusivity in the movement. Some communities feel like they are not considered, or underrepresented into the movement. Those have to be sensitized, strengthened and considered in different decision making facilities towards the availability of the movement projects in more, even all the languages around the world. This will even empower the communities with skills to best accomplish projects aimed to evolve the Wikimedia movement.

Tobechukwu Precious Friday (Tochiprecious)

Great question, I’m glad the recommendation 4 of the Movement Strategy 2030 has addressed this but for the short term, here are my suggestions: i. We should focus our information and data gathering on specific resource inequities. ii. Construct spaces where stakeholders who are representatives of the communities can meaningfully engage in the process. iii. Ask equity-centered questions about resources or protocols, decisions and impacts.

The money is not the engine in a volunteer based question. The question should be why there are not so many volunteers coming from certain regions of the world ? That's a systemic problem, and the money is not the only solution. We are here for sharing knowledge, not money !

Abderamane Abakar Brahim (Abakar B)

First, list all the pleas and then classify them in order of need. And thus continue with the distribution approaches according to the relevance.

In other to ensure more equity in the distribution of resources and in funding protocols for affiliates, In the short term there should be more geographical analysis in the distribution of resources and funding protocols for affiliates in other to come up with the data parameters for all the Affiliates. Also measuring equality, the scale of inequality and equity of resources and funding protocols is of importance in other to come up with good results.

No response yet.

Kunal Mehta (Legoktm)

I will openly admit that this is not an area where I have a significant amount of experience, especially for short-term solutions, that I feel comfortable proposing a solution. I am regularly reading discussions related to these topics on-wiki and in mailing lists to better understand current problems as well as potential solutions.

Shani Evenstein Sigalov (Esh77)

Supported by the BoT, in the past year WMF has launched a new Grants system that aims to do exactly that. From my point of view as a trustee I would like to see how this works, learn what works and what doesn’t, and iterate.

I’d also like to encourage people with ideas on how to improve our processes, to speak up and share their thoughts. Unlike the time before I joined the BoT, we now have the Board’s Community Affair Committee, as well as dedicated WMF staff, who are always open to hear ideas and thoughts for improvements.

Gina Bennett (Redwidgeon)

I think that the recent changes in how WMF funds are dispersed, and the creation and education of the Regional Committees, is a great step towards increased equity in the distribution of resources and funding. In a year or 2 it would be useful to evaluate the success of the Regional Committee approach towards increasing equity.

Michał Buczyński (Aegis Maelstrom)

Equity is a complex term, and all equities must be answered. Donors' equity and audiences' equity beg for scrutiny in spending, sound reasoning and plans, strong execution and impact. Volunteers' equity asks for resources accessability, support and capacity building, fair treatment.
Certainly the burden should be adequate to the resources but also the Movement allocating funds needs to know how the money will be and were spent, and if the governance, strategy and activities meet the expectations. In general, new hubs providing direct support and capacity building should help smaller organizations tremendously.
