The Call for Feedback: Board of Trustees elections is now open and will
close on 7 February 2022.
With this Call for Feedback, the Movement Strategy and Governance team is
taking a different approach. This approach incorporates community feedback
from 2021. Instead of leading with proposals, the Call is framed around key
questions from the Board of Trustees. The key questions came from the
feedback about the 2021 Board of Trustees election. The intention is to
inspire collective conversation and collaborative proposal development
about these key questions.
There are two confirmed questions that will be asked during this Call for
1. What is the best way to ensure more diverse representation among
elected candidates? *The Board of Trustees noted the importance of
selecting candidates who represent the full diversity of the Wikimedia
movement. The current processes have favored volunteers from North America
2. What are the expectations for the candidates during the election? *Board
candidates have traditionally completed applications and answered community
questions. How can an election provide appropriate insight into candidates
while also appreciating candidates’ status as volunteers?*
There is one additional question that may be presented during the Call
about selection processes. This question is still under discussion, but the
Board wanted to give insight into the confirmed questions as soon as
possible. Hopefully if an additional question is going to be asked, it will
be ready during the first week of the Call for Feedback.
Join the conversation.
