As a total random, I'd also like to second this - as much as I think the CoC and the committee in particular have room to improve in how things are handled, this will never happen without proper support for the work they're doing in the first place.

While some of us have been somewhat flabbergasted by specific events, these are after all the people we need to be working with to actually resolve the issues at hand, and indeed the events (and handling thereof) themselves have also highlighted the need for more clearer standards moving forward. I'm glad to see some steps have already been taken. Let's continue in this vein.

Thank you!

Hey,
As a member of Code of conduct committee I just wanted to express how much
I appreciate your statement. The work we are doing is not fun, we are
dealing with frustrations, harassments, trolling, and all sorts of the dark
side of the Wikimedia movement but I genuinely believe that this type of
work is vital to keep the movement moving forward, to make us more
welcoming and foster a diverse environment.

All of the support I've received, private and public, online and offline is
overwhelming. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

Best

Hello everyone,

The executive leadership team, on behalf of the Foundation, would like to
issue a statement of unequivocal support for the Code of Conduct[1] and the
community-led Code of Conduct Committee. We believe that the development
and implementation of the Code are vital in ensuring the healthy
functioning of our technical communities and spaces. The Code of Conduct
was created to address obstacles and occasionally very problematic personal
communications that limit participation and cause real harm to community
members and staff. In engaging in this work we are setting the tone for the
ways we collaborate in tech. We are saying that treating others badly is
not welcome in our communities. And we are joining an important movement in
the tech industry to address these problems in a way that supports
self-governance consistent with our values.

This initiative is critical in continuing the amazing work of our projects
and ensuring that they continue to flourish in delivering on the critical
vision of being the essential infrastructure of free knowledge now and
forever.

Toby, Maggie, Eileen, Heather, Lisa, Katherine, Jaime, Joady, and Victoria
