As a member of the board of trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, I, 
Florence Devouard, am committed to Wikimedia Foundation’s goal to 
establish and maintain the highest level of public confidence in its 
accountability. I have personally committed to follow the standards set 
out below, which represent the Wikimedia Foundation’s conflict of 
interest policies:

I will conduct my activities with the board of trustees of Wikimedia 
Foundation so that I do not advance or protect my own interests, or the 
private interests of others with whom I have a relationship, in a way 
that is detrimental to the interests of, or to the fundamental mission 
of, Wikimedia Foundation.

In every instance in which I represent the Wikimedia Foundation, I will 
conduct my activities in a manner to best promote the interests of 
Wikimedia Foundation.

In all matters that come before the board of trustees for a vote that 
may favorably impact my own financial interests, or the private 
interests of others with whom I have a financial relationship, or any 
organization of which I am a part, I will reveal that relationship and 
abstain from a vote in the matter.

When a conflict of interest arises, or when a potential conflict of 
interest emerges, I will promptly disclose that conflict, or potential 
conflict, to the Executive Director of Wikimedia Foundation and to the 
Chairman of its board of trustees and seek a resolution of that issue.

Entered into on this the 17th day of October, 2006.
Florence Devouard
Member, Board of Trustees
Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.
