In this session, we will tap the expertise of Wikimedia Community Leaders from around the world who gathered earlier this year at the Wikimedia Conference in Berlin to discuss the Impact of the Wikimedia Movement and begin to answer these questions:

How do we define the common impact of the movement? What does impact mean on a global and on a local level?

How do we measure impact? How can impact measurement help us to prioritize our actions?

What programs have proven to be successful in terms of generating impact? How can they be replicated and how do we scale them up?

How do other nonprofit organizations define and measure impact? What can we learn from them?

The Wikimedia Foundation Program Capacity and Learning Team will facilitate this session in concert with local leaders, as we continue iteration of defining impact and sharing knowledge about program impact across the movement This session will also offer take home tools and resources to support the growth and impact of Wikimedia Programs.
