The WMF Community Events team are proposing a short training series *for
Wikimedia community event organizers* (volunteers and affiliate staff)
where we will bring in *an expert facilitator and event producer both with
international event experience to discuss the importance of incorporating
quality facilitation into your events and how to do it.* This will likely
be a two part series of 75 - 90 minute sessions where *each session will
include training, active facilitation practice and modeling, and some
discussion around how this fits specifically into the Wikimedia context and
how this can help strengthen your community building efforts with diverse,
multi-modal facilitation best practices*.
Depending on the interests of the participants we will focus more heavily
on in person or remote events - but both event types will be covered.
Please read more about this training series and express interest here *before
April 2: *
Questions welcome on the talk page!
