Wikimedia Summit 2019/Program
|Program||Fringe Events||Registration & Participants
The Wikimedia Summit is a three-days conference for the Wikimedia organizations and groups. Main focus of the event is the ongoing Movement Strategy process (as outlined in the program design process).
We have invited both Wikimedia affiliate and Wikimedia Foundation leadership to this event, as both as important stakeholders of this ongoing process. Additionally, working group members throughout all nine working groups have been invited to review/feedback their work so far, and present and outlook to what will (or needs to) happen until Wikimania 2019.
Throughout the three day event the participant group of approx. 200 people will regularly convene in plenary sessions, as well as split into the main groups (Affiliate/WMF leadership & working group members).
The outline for the Wikimedia Summit program is as follows:
Main idea: Welcome to the new Wikimedia Summit, what is the Wikimedia Summit what will we do here, and who is in the room.
2A. Working Group Time
Main idea: Time for each Working Group to reconnect live and get ready for the work during the Wikimedia Summit.
2B. Your involvement in the Movement Strategy process
Main idea: Participants can find out more about their involvement in the Strategy work, and also have a chance to discuss and share their own work with each other.
3A. Working Group Time
Main idea: Working Groups discuss the overlaps between them and how to start connecting and coordinating their work.
3B. Your involvement in Movement Governance
Main idea: Wikimedia Affiliates discuss the process for electing the two ASBS Board of Trustees.
This session will introduce and discuss the process for selecting the two Affiliate-Selected Board Seats. The meeting will focus on making sure all affiliates are engaged in the process, discuss concerns about the process, and come to an agreement on a resolution. Here is a draft resolution that we will walk through and update based on the discussion -- Affiliate-selected_Board_seats/Resolution_2019. We will use this slide deck and record our notes on Etherpad. This session is intended for all affiliates (chapters, users groups, and thematic organizations). * This Draft Resolution has been updated based on Affiliate feedback from this meeting *
4. + 5. Changing Movement Structures
Main idea: Lots of time to discuss all the possible changes to Movement Structures that will enable the Movement to better support everyone move towards the 2030 Strategic Direction.
6. Progress check-in
Main idea: Time to stop to reflect on the Summit so far, and to hear from the Board of Trustees and ask questions.
7A. Working Group Time
Main idea: Working Groups planning for the months ahead and working towards the final Recommendations.
7B. Your agenda
Main idea: A second chance for participants to discuss and share about whatever is relevant for them.
8. What happens next
Main idea: Understanding what happens after the Wikimedia Summit and how everyone can be involved.
Main idea: Let’s celebrate and go home!
