Jimmy, Thank you for your reply, and I apologize for how late this one is. When I asked how you intend to speak with the Board of Trustees and with staff, I did not mean what technical means you will use. It doesn't much matter to me whether you speak with them in person, over email, over Hangouts, or what have you.
I am instead concerned with how (and if) you will be able to clearly communicate your discussions between these two groups, since you are apparently the one doing so. Perhaps more concerning to me: do you intend to take steps to make WMF staff comfortable speaking to you? If so, what are these steps? As Oliver and others have made clear, staff have gone through what sounds like an extended, traumatic period. I think the mass exodus of staff members makes that very clear. Some have spoken of intimidation about speaking up with their concerns. How will you ensure they don't feel the same around you? Thanks, Molly (GorillaWarfare) _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediaemail@example.com Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
