THEME: Community perspectives

On april 25th april 2024 , from 12 PM UTC to 14PM UTC we had the Conversation on the Wikimedia Movement Charter Discussions for East and Southern Africa communities. As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure inclusivity and diversity in decision-making processes, we hosted Movement Charter conversations specifically tailored to engage communities from Swahili, Kinyarwanda, and Zulu language-speaking areas.

This conversation was the second in a series, following our initial discussion on April 11th. We appreciated that the three communities were represented even beyond and we were able to hear perspectives from various participants in different formats , taking the notes , using the chat , easy Retro platform , as well as contributing raising the hand speaking on behalf of different categories they represented for example people living with disabilities , women groups and so on . We were able to gather feedback on the current draft of the Movement Charter and we hope these insights will play a vital role in shaping the future decision-making ecosystem of Wikimedia.
