The WMF publishes its Annual Plan for 2018-2019. Headline is that income is expected to be $93M. Staff numbers will increase from 310 by an additional 44 (FTE). Healthy near-50% increase in staff travel and in external legal fees. An extra couple of million to outside consultants. The gravy train rumbles on.
From the annual "Communications" plan:
I wonder what the 8.3 million dimes they paid to Minassian Media from 2015 to 2017 were for if they haven't developed a plan yet. I seem to recall GW taking Kumioko to task for his awkward mention of "females". I hope that K will read the officially-sanctioned terminology and correct his speech. ^^Communications strategy—develop a plan: Directly address meaningful awareness of Wikipedia to female-identifying people. This should inform the Wikimedia Foundation messaging platform and all other communications work from executive communications to public narrative to digital media.
Because there aren't nearly enough transgenders on Wikipedia.
