The Wikimedia Foundation, the nonprofit that supports Wikipedia and the other Wikimedia projects, hosts a monthly metrics and activities meeting to share stories, initiatives, projects, research, and more about the Wikimedia movement.

The meetings are for people involved with or interested in the Wikimedia movement. Speakers include Foundation staff, volunteer Wikimedians from around the world, and other free and open knowledge leaders. We invite you to watch — to learn more about Wikipedia, its sister sites, the free and open knowledge movement, and the people who make them possible.

The meetings typically take place on the last Thursday of each month at the Wikimedia Foundation's San Francisco offices. The meetings are broadcast live and available for everyone to view.
