WIKIPEDIA’S 6 LEADERSHIP VALUES via Jimmy Wales

WIKIPEDIA’S 6 LEADERSHIP VALUES via Jimmy Wales

Freedom
Our community should have the freedom to fork thanks to freely available dumps. The community will in turn create a body of knowledge which can be distributed freely throughout the world.

Accessibility and quality 1:13
We try, through partnerships if necessary, to ensure the widest distribution, through DVD’s, books, PDF’s, or other non-internet based means.

Transparency 4:45
We must communicate Wikimedia Foundation information in a transparent, thorough and timely manner, to our communities and more generally, to the public.
Independence
As a non-profit, we mostly depend on gifts to operate (donations, grants, sponsorship, etc.). we strictly follow a donation policy, reserve the right to refuse donations which could generate constraints, and try to multiply the diversity of revenue sources.

Commitment to openness and diversity 7:15
Though US-based, the organization is international in its nature. Not only do we accept diversity, but we actually look forward to it.
Our community is our biggest asset
We support community-led collaborative projects, and must respect the work and the ideas of our community. We must listen and take into account our communities in any decisions taken to achieve our mission.
