Universal Code of Conduct – 2021 consultations[Am Quelltext weakln]

Universal Code of Conduct Phase 2[Am Quelltext weakln]

Hilf bitte mit, in deine Sprache zu übersetzen

The Universal Code of Conduct (UCoC) provides a universal baseline of acceptable behavior for the entire Wikimedia movement and all its projects. The project is currently in Phase 2, outlining clear enforcement pathways. You can read more about the whole project on its project page.

Drafting Committee: Call for applications[Am Quelltext weakln]

The Wikimedia Foundation is recruiting volunteers to join a committee to draft how to make the code enforceable. Volunteers on the committee will commit between 2 and 6 hours per week from late April through July and again in October and November. It is important that the committee be diverse and inclusive, and have a range of experiences, including both experienced users and newcomers, and those who have received or responded to, as well as those who have been falsely accused of harassment.

To apply and learn more about the process, see Universal Code of Conduct/Drafting committee.

2021 community consultations: Notice and call for volunteers / translators[Am Quelltext weakln]

From 5 April – 5 May 2021 there will be conversations on many Wikimedia projects about how to enforce the UCoC. We are looking for volunteers to translate key material, as well as to help host consultations on their own languages or projects using suggested key questions. If you are interested in volunteering for either of these roles, please contact us in whatever language you are most comfortable.

To learn more about this work and other conversations taking place, see Universal Code of Conduct/2021 consultations.

Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees election has come to an end[Am Quelltext weakln]

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.

Im Rahmen des Movement-Strategy-Prozesses werden Kandidierende für die Schreibgruppe (drafting committee) der Movement Charta gesucht. Die Kandidierenden-Suche beginnt am 2. August und läuft bis zum 14. September 2021.

Die Schreibgruppe wird um die 15 Mitglieder haben, die idealerweise die Vielfalt des Wikimedia-Movements repräsentieren, wie Geschlechter, Sprachen, geographische Herkunft, Erfahrung.

Wir suchen Mitglieder, die über einige dieser Fähigkeiten oder Erfahrungen verfügen:

  • Wissen, wie man kollaborativ schreibt. (nachgewiesene Erfahrung ist ein Plus)
  • Kompromissbereit sind.
  • Sich auf Inklusion und Vielfalt konzentrieren.
  • Kenntnisse über Community-Konsultationen (z.B. Meinungsbilder) haben.
  • Erfahrung in interkultureller Kommunikation mitbringen.
  • Erfahrungen in der Leitung oder Organisation von Non-Profit-Organisationen oder Communities haben.
  • Erfahrung im Verhandeln mit verschiedenen Parteien haben.

Es wird davon ausgegangen, dass das Komitee anfangs 15 Personen umfasst. Wenn es 20 oder mehr Kandidierende gibt, findet ein gemischtes Wahl- und Auswahlverfahren statt. Gibt es 19 oder weniger Kandidierende, findet das Auswahlverfahren ohne Wahl statt.

Möchtest du dich gerne in diesem Prozess engagieren? Dann reiche deine Kandidatur hier ein. Wenn du Fragen hast, schreib gerne an strategy2030(_AT_)
