Hi everyone,

I'm pleased to announce that the Wikimedia Foundation's Annual Plan is now
on Meta.[1]

This year we are continuing to adhere to the three strategic priorities
laid out in the 2016-2018 interim strategic plan: reach, communities, and
knowledge.

Across the organization, we've introduced cross-departmental programs and
planning, with a holistic approach to program support that draws on our
community, technical, and other capacities. We feel that this new approach
creates stronger and better outcomes for programs, and is also clearer as
to what the Foundation is prioritizing. Some examples of these
cross-departmental programs include New Readers, Structured Data, and
Community Health, which have been discussed on this list and on wiki
throughout the past year.

Throughout the rest of the organization and department programs, we're
continuing to invest in the areas we identified through the 2016-2018
interim strategic plan, as well as core work such as operational
improvements, deepening diversity and inclusion, improving privacy and
security, and funding the Wikimedia endowment.

Thank you all for your support over the past year. Your participation in
the movement strategy process launched this year is deeply appreciated, and
it is remarkable to think that next year's plan will begin to incorporate
the directions we design together.

In the meanwhile, I'm looking forward to your feedback on this year's
proposed plan during this open comment period.

Yours,
Katherine

Hi all,

The Wikimedia Foundation is pleased to announce that the final version of
our Annual Plan is now available on Meta. [1] The Annual Plan was approved
by the Board of Trustees on June 16th.

This Annual Plan continues to align the Foundation’s work to the strategic
priorities set out in the interim strategic plan for 2016-18: reach,
communities, and knowledge. We have introduced cross-departmental planning
that will drive several large programs this year. We will be continuing to
invest in our core work while investing in our future through the Movement
Strategy work, the contribution to the endowment, and our work on
Wikimedia’s identity and public awareness.

From all of us here at the Foundation, we thank the FDC and everyone who
asked questions and provided feedback on the Annual Plan throughout its
development. This feedback continues to challenge us and push us to improve
our planning, our programs, and the way that we share our work. We have
incorporated some of your feedback directly into the plan, and know that
there are other areas where we can continue to evolve and improve.

In our work, in collaboration, and in the spirit of the mission, we look
forward to the year ahead!

Yours,
Katherine
