I’m writing to let you know that our VP of Human Resources, Boryana Dineva,
has decided to move on.
Boryana joined the Wikimedia Foundation last fall and quickly began working
with the HR team to build a recruiting team, hire a learning and
development lead, support the creation of a comprehensive wellness plan for
the upcoming year, and focus HR efforts on engaging with the findings of
the engagement survey.
Boryana connected on a personal level with many of you. She wanted me to
pass along her strong support for the future of the Foundation and our
mission. We thank her for her contributions and wish her well in her future
Starting today Joady Lohr will lead the Team Practices and Talent and
Culture department as interim director, joining the c-team. Joady has been
with the Foundation for 4 years now, and is known and trusted by many
across the organization. We’re looking forward to supporting her and the
rest of the team on ongoing projects during this interim period.
The executive team plans to open up a search for a new executive head of HR
to lead the Talent, Culture, and Team Practices teams right away.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to
