[African Wikimedians] Fwd: Wikimedia Clinic #001 digest and future calls

Dear Wikimedians,

This is an update on the Wikimedia Clinics[1] pilot:

On June 15th we hosted the first Wikimedia Clinic call. It was well attended (~25 volunteers, not counting WMF staff), with a good mix of experience levels and countries of origin. As promised, we publish a digest of the call[1], edited for clarity and brevity, and aiming for maximal value to readers whether or not they attended the call, with links and information added after the call to complement the information given during it.

To accommodate different time zones, we are about to host the second Wikimedia Clinic in a few hours, June 17th at 8:00am UTC. The meeting link is [3].

We have also added three more Wikimedia Clinic time slots, which you can always see in the Clinics page on Meta[1], where the meeting links are given too. I also paste the times here for your convenience:

Wednesday, June 17th, 08:00am UTC (today, soon!)
Tuesday, June 23rd, 08:00am UTC
Sunday, June 28th, 17:30 UTC
Wednesday, July 1st, 17:30 UTC

We at the Community Development team are already finding this a useful model, and have already drawn some valuable feedback that will translate into future work from us. One example is a movement-facing Introduction to the Wikimedia Foundation module (see the digest[2]).
