Episode 19: Charting the Movement Charter

What’s in this episode?

In this episode we talk about the Wikimedia Movement Charter – the “artifact” that spells out who we are, what values we have, and what roles and responsibilities the various Movement bodies have. The close-to final draft of the charter is now online for comments and review. We talk with two members of the Movement Charter Drafting Committee, and a community member involved in the original strategy formation. We touch upon the history of the charter, the motivation and work that went into it. We learn what if affirms and what it adds. We also find out why it ended up being a short document!
