Meeting in the Middle: Creating a Universal Code of Conduct with a Global Member Community
Hosted by TSPA
In 2021, the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), the nonprofit that administers Wikipedia and its companion projects (e.g, Wikimedia Commons, Wikidata, Wikivoyage), launched its first ever Universal Code of Conduct. This Code expands existing policies and outlines the kinds of behaviors that are and are not acceptable across more than 700 sites. Remarkably, more than 1,500 volunteers from 19 different projects representing five continents and 30 languages participated in drafting the Code. Join us for a member presentation by Patrick Earley, Lead Policy Manager, Trust & Safety, to learn more about how his team collaborated with a global member community of contributors and what comes next. This virtual event is for TSPA members only. Registration is required. The registration access code can be found on the TSPA member portal and via the TSPA Slack space.
