[Wikimedia-l] Invitation to WMF April 2017 Metrics & Activities Meeting: Thursday, April 27, 18:00 UTC

Lena Traer
Hello everyone,

The next Wikimedia Foundation metrics and activities meeting will take
place on Thursday, April 27, 2017 at 6:00 PM UTC (11 AM PDT). The IRC
channel is #wikimedia-office on irc.freenode.net, and the meeting will be
broadcast as a live YouTube stream.

The theme of the April meeting is: “Wikimedia for the world” (part 2) –
understanding how we can better serve and include people around the world
in the Wikimedia movement. Because we had so many timely and relevant
stories from around the movement related to this theme, we chose to use
this theme for the April meeting as well.

Meeting agenda:

* Welcomes, theme introduction
* Movement update
* New Readers update
* Strengthening indigenous language Wikipedias in Latin America
* Movement strategy update
* Questions and discussion
* Wikilove

Please review

for further information about the meeting and how to participate.

We’ll post the video recording publicly after the meeting.

Thank you,
Lena

REMINDER: This meeting starts in 30 minutes.

*Update/change to Movement update:* As noted in the March meeting invite,
we are changing the movement update section of the metrics meeting. For the
April meeting, we will be having a lightning talk-inspired movement update
where Wikimedia community member(s) will share a brief summary of a recent
community project, story, or other activity. More details about other
community stories, projects, and initiatives in the movement will be
available in the appendix of the metrics meeting deck.
