Dear Indic Wikimedians,
As you may already know, Movement Charter is a key priority of Movement Strategy. The Movement Charter will be a document defining roles and responsibilities for all the members and entities of the Wikimedia Movement, including laying out a new Global Council for movement governance. A broad ratification process is expected for its adoption. One of the first steps in the process is to constitute a Movement Charter drafting committee.
To gather inputs from community members regarding forming this committee, a regional event is being organized on 25 June 2021 (Friday) from 6:30 pm to 8 pm (IST). This event is a part of several regional conversations that will lead up to the global conversations.
The discussion will mainly be focused on the following questions:
- What composition should the committee have in terms of movement roles, gender, regions, affiliations and other diversity factors?
- What is the best process to select the committee members to form a competent and diverse team?
- How much dedication is it reasonable to expect from committee members, in terms of hours per week and months of work?

Note: You may also send in your responses to the above questions via email if you prefer it that way.
