I'm sorry if you've already received this invitation on other lists but I
wanted to encourage those of you working with libraries and
cultural institutions to share your perspective, if you have availability
between now and January 2021.
All my best,

Subject: [Wikimedia-l] Call for insights on ways to better communicate the
work of the movement
To: Wikimedia Mailing List <wikimedia-l(a)lists.wikimedia.org>
The Movement Strategy recommendations published this year made clear the
importance of establishing stronger communications within our movement.
To this end, the Foundation wants to gather insights from communities on
ways we all might more consistently communicate about our collective work,
and better highlight community contributions from across the movement. Over
the coming months, we will be running focus groups and online discussions
to collect these insights. Individual focus groups will include 10-15
volunteers who will be asked to share insights on specific questions as
part of a facilitated discussion.
How can we best communicate with your community on an ongoing basis? In
what ways does the Foundation currently support your work? We ask you to
share your thoughts on these and other questions by signing up for a focus
group by the end of Wednesday, 2 December, or participating in the
discussion on Meta-Wiki .
We would like to collect feedback from across the movement, representing a
wide range of insights and opinions. We will be working to build as many
focus groups as possible, but want to be upfront that we may face
limitations on the number of groups we can convene based on the level of
interest. However, if you would like to discuss your thoughts in detail, we
are also offering the chance to connect with the Communications team in
other ways, including individual and group meetings and office hours .
Initial discussions are happening between now and January 2021. We invite
you to join the conversation, and look forward to working together to
explore some important questions.
