Mozilla is built upon openness and transparency as our core values, both in the products we make and in how we operate. We rely upon open, collaborative practices to bring in external perspectives, knowledge, creativity and contribution to many of our products, technologies, and operations. And this is only possible because of you: skilled, passionate contributors and communities with various backgrounds, disciplines, and motivations. Together with like-minded organizations and companies, universities and NGOs you form what we have started to call our “Rebel Alliance” - underlining that we can achieve collaboratively is more than a single organization could ever do alone.
As many of you might remember, in 2017 the Open Innovation Team conducted a first-of-its kind research project, in which we surveyed over 1,000 volunteers and ran a quantitative study looking at 16 years of contribution data in Bugzilla, GitHub, on email lists and elsewhere to help inform the organization about how we could ‘revitalize participation’ at Mozilla. The results not only provided invaluable insights into our communities but also informed our Open by Design strategy, which we have been steadily implementing.
Now, we plan to repeat this comprehensive “pulse check” of our contributor communities and hope for as stellar survey completion rates as 2017! We will need 10 minutes of your time to help us better understand Mozilla’s relationships with volunteers and collaborators.We have added a few new questions related to contributor community diversity and inclusion, issues in which we invest quite a lot of our hearts and time.
The survey is localized in French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic and can be found in the links below:
- Survey in English
- Encuesta en Español
- Pesquisa em Português
- Umfrage auf Deutsch
- Enquête en Français
- طلب كشف باللغة العربية
Please note that it will be open until May 3rd. We aim to publish the results together with the findings of the contribution data analysis this Summer and will communicate progress steps along the way.
Many thanks to everyone in advance for their participation!
