Abstract[edit | edit source]
The Product and Technology departments have developed a Product Platform Strategy to move us into the 2030 vision of being the “Essential Infrastructure of free knowledge”. In this session we will introduce the strategy and how we will implement this strategy moving forwards. The strategy focuses on equitable growth--how do we work with communities and volunteers around the world to grow the movement. We will review methodologies for working with communities to achieve equitable growth with a focus on the pilot teams. Each of these pilots will work with communities around the world to test ideas for how we can grow in an equitable, safe and resilient way.
