  • Helping implement and monitor participation in organizer training as part of the 2022 Organizer Lab program

  • Supporting evaluation of campaign events both for impact, and capacity development among local communities.

Skills and Experience:

  • Experience successfully organizing online activities in Wikimedia communities
  • Knowledge about effective tactics for organizing content drives, editathons or other campaign tactics in the Wikimedia movement.
  • Experience communicating in English to the international Wikimedia community and publishing it in Wikimedia community channels, such as Wikimedia mailing lists, Meta Wiki, Telegram or Facebook.
  • Experience evaluating the impact of content-focused activities in the Wikimedia movement through organizing tools like the Programs and Events Dashboard, Fountain or Hashtags tool.

Qualities that are important to us:

  • A passion for and belief in free and open knowledge, and a willingness to get involved in the complex, decentralized process of creating it.

  • A willingness to spend time thinking and learning about how different Wikimedia communities organize in their own context.
  • A commitment to helping local communities develop activities and outreach tactics relevant to their context and culture.

Additionally, we’d love it if you have:

  • Experience doing outreach with audiences beyond the existing community in the Wikimedia movement (e.g. Education, GLAM or Library outreach).
  • Knowledge or experience working with topics such as climate change, human rights or broader international topics for impact (i.e. the Sustainable Development Goals).
