As you may have heard, I joined the Wikimedia Foundation last Monday as the
VP of Human Resources. I am so excited to be here and help to the best of
One of the projects that I am currently focusing on is adding two members
to our board of trustees. I wanted to reach out to you and ask you to
nominate candidates that you think should be considered.
I am attaching a role description that will provide more insight into what
the ideal candidates for these two board slots would be. If someone you
know comes to mind, please send the name of the candidate including some
information regarding why you think they would be great. Also let me know
if you know that person is interested in the position and can afford the
time commitment the role will require or if it’s someone you think may be
great but are unsure if they are interested or would have time to commit.
Please email nominations to board-nominations(a)lists.wikimedia.org by next
Wednesday, Sept 30th. I understand that this is a short notice and not much
time to nominate, but we need to find someone that can start in Nov and we
need to contact, screen, interview, etc before then.
Thank you in advance for your nominations and have a wonderful weekend!
