Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

The Wikimedia Foundation's reading team faces a unique challenge in that our volunteer communities are very important stakeholders with a vested interest, but represent <1% of our users.

As creators and builders of the projects, you have a desire and a right to present your work in the best possible light. On our side, we have a team dedicated to learning about reader needs, product evaluation, design and technical execution. We would like to work with you more closely to figure out how to build better features for our readers.

What will attendees take away from this session?

Better tools for dialogue and conversation between the Wikimedia Foundation's reading team and Wikimedians.
