I am leaving the Wikimedia Foundation to take up a job as a Senior
Data Scientist at an information security company. My last day will be
on 18 March.
After 12 months of continual stress, losses and workplace fear, I no
longer wish to work for the Wikimedia Foundation.
While I appreciate that the Board of Trustees may take steps to
rectify the situation, I have no confidence in their ability to
effectively do so given their failure to solve for the problem until
it became a publicity issue as well as a staff complaint.
I wish the movement and community the best of luck in building a
fairer, more transparent and more representative governing structure.
All the best,
Of these last 5 years, Wikimedia Foundation
