Wikimedia Foundation elections/2024/Questions for candidates

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

This page contains details about questions for the candidates of 2024 Wikimedia Foundation Board election.


In each selection process, the community has the opportunity to submit questions for the Board of Trustees candidates to answer. The Election Committee selects questions from the list developed by the community for the candidates to answer. Candidates are only required to answer these selected questions. This year, the Election Committee will select five (5) questions for the candidates to answer. The selected questions may be a combination of what’s been submitted from the community, if they’re alike or related.

Once selected, each question is broken into a subpage to help with readability.

The Call for Questions in this 2024 selection process starts on May 8, 2024 and ends on June 12, 2024. The Elections Committee will review only the questions submitted by 23:59 UTC, June 12, 2024.
