Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[biguherîne]

Thank you for participating in the 2021 Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election! Voting closed August 31 at 23:59. The official data, including the four most voted candidates, will be announced as soon as the Elections Committee completes their review of the ballots. The official announcement of the new trustees appointed will happen later, once the selected candidates have been confirmed by the Board.

6,946 community members from 216 wiki projects have voted. This makes 10.2% global participation, 1.1% higher than in the last Board elections. In 2017, 5167 people from 202 wiki projects cast their vote. A full analysis is planned to be published in a few days when the confirmed results are announced. In the meantime, you can check the data produced during the election.

Diversity was an important goal with these elections. Messages about the Board election were translated into 61 languages. This outreach worked well. There were 70 communities with eligible voters voting in this election for the first time. With your help, next year’s Board of Trustees election will be even better.

Banga Pêşerojê ji bo Bersivdan di derbarê hilbijartinên Desteya Rêvebir de[biguherîne]

Hûn dikarin vê peyamê li ser Meta-wiki wergerînin zimanên din bibînin.

Desteya Rêvebir ji 7ê Rêbendan - 10ê Sibata 2022an de ji bo Hilbijartinên Desteyê yên dahatûyê bangek ji bo bersivdayînê amade dike.

Dema ku hûrgulî dê hefteyek berî bangê were qedandin, me bi kêmî ve du pirsên ku dê di dema vê bangê de ji bo bersivdayînê bêne pirsîn û bêne piştrast kirin:

  • Awayê çêtirîn ji bo misogerkirina temsîliyeta adil a civakên nûjen di nav Lijneyê de çi ye?
  • Di hilbijartinan de divê namzed çi tevlêbûnê bikin?

Digel ku dibe ku pirsên din werin zêdekirin, tîmê Stratejî û Rêvebiriya Tevgerê dixwaze wextê peyda bike ji endamên civatê û hevalbendan re ku berî vekirina bangê li ser pirsên pejirandî fikir û ramanan amade bikin. Em jibo vî lêborînê dixwazin ku di vê demê de navnîşek bêkêmasî ya pirsan tune. Navnîşa pirsan divê tenê bi yek an du pirsan mezin bibe. Mebest ew e ku civatê bi daxwazan newestîne û lê li ser van pirsên girîng agahdarî û nerînên xêrxwaziyê peyda bike.

Hûn dixwazin di vê Bangê de alîkariya organîzekirina danûstendina herêmî bikin?

Bi koma Stratejî û Rêvebiriya Tevgerê re li ser Meta, li ser Telegramê bi e-nameya maîledresê re têkilî daynin.

Ger pirs û fikarên we hebin bikevin têkiliyê. Tîma Stratejî û Rêvebiriyê ya Tevgerê dê heta 3ê Çileyê bi kêmanî dixebite. Ji kerema xwe, jibo her bersivek dereng di vê demê de biborînin. Di heman demê de em dizanin ku hinek endam û hevkarên civakê di betlaneyên Kanûnê de negirêdayî ne. Dema ku hûn di betlaneyê de ne, em lêborînê dixwazin.

Upcoming Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections[biguherîne]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

The Board of Trustees is preparing a call for feedback about the upcoming Board Elections, from January 7 - February 10, 2022.

While details will be finalized the week before the call, we have confirmed at least two questions that will be asked during this call for feedback:

  • What is the best way to ensure fair representation of emerging communities among the Board?
  • What involvement should candidates have during the election?

While additional questions may be added, the Movement Strategy and Governance team wants to provide time for community members and affiliates to consider and prepare ideas on the confirmed questions before the call opens. We apologize for not having a complete list of questions at this time. The list of questions should only grow by one or two questions. The intention is to not overwhelm the community with requests, but provide notice and welcome feedback on these important questions.

Do you want to help organize local conversation during this Call?

Contact the Movement Strategy and Governance team on Meta, on Telegram, or via email at msg(_AT_)wikimedia.org.

Reach out if you have any questions or concerns. The Movement Strategy and Governance team will be minimally staffed until January 3. Please excuse any delayed response during this time. We also recognize some community members and affiliates are offline during the December holidays. We apologize if our message has reached you while you are on holiday.

Call for Feedback about the Board of Trustees elections is now open[biguherîne]

You can find this message translated into additional languages on Meta-wiki.

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.

Join the conversation.
