Wikimedia Summit 2022/Participants' list

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Application review process[edit]

The Wikimedia Summit will be a hybrid event, and an inclusive, productive experience for both online and offline participants. Due to limited space on-site and based on the quality of applications, 95 in-person attendance slots (from a total of ~150) were allocated to affiliates, incl. seats for their full-time, paid Executive Directors.

As stated in the initial announcement email, an application process was established to produce a list of on-site attendees in a fair and transparent way. The application form consisted of three questions on each affiliate’s engagement and interest in Movement Strategy work.

All 117 applications were reviewed by six reviewers, namely: Hanan El-Youssef (WMF), Kaarel Vaidla (WMF), Cornelius Kibelka (WMF), Érica Azzelini (Wiki Movimento Brasil), Nikki Zeuner (WMDE), and Nicole Ebber (WMDE). When allocating in-person slots, the reviewers based their decisions not only on the answers given in the application, but put emphasis on the fact that all regions are represented, without a heavy skew towards Western Europe and North America.

The list has also been reviewed both by the Affiliations Committee and the Foundation’s Trust & Safety team. Banned participants cannot participate, affiliates under suspension may participate online only.

As pointed out in our announcement and the application form, answers provided to the three questions were published on Meta. This overview of each affiliate’s interest and engagement in Wikimedia 2030 creates transparency in the application process, indicates opportunities for exchange and partnerships, and will inform the Summit program.

This process was conducted in a time of transformation for our movement. We very much look forward to the moment when the movement charter eventually outlines equitable rules and processes for participation in what we assume will be the movement’s annual general meeting.

Full participants list[edit]

The Wikimedia Summit is the place for affiliates and the Wikimedia Foundation to come together to discuss and shape the future of the Wikimedia Movement.

Please note that this list only include people who gave their explicit consent to have their name published on this list in our registration sruvey.

The implementation of Regional and Thematic Hubs is currently one of the most active initiatives of the Movement Strategy. Therefore, we have reserved a very small amount of additional invites for Hubs groups. Based on the published list of affiliates that will be participating in the Wikimedia Summit in-person, a few additional slots were provided to groups that are working on establishing a hub. Many Hubs will be already represented by affiliate representatives participating in the Summit. Therefore, criteria for providing additional in-person slots were based on either lack of in-person attendance or advanced state of progress in setting-up a Hub. Other groups will receive one online participation slot each.
