Hi all,

Well, as a C level who left WMF far too soon due to urgent personal and
family health issues, I will just say this on my own behalf: I loved
working at WMF. I loved working with my legal team, all of whose members
are wonderful and brilliant lawyers and utterly committed Wikimedians. I
loved the community. I felt equally strongly about Katherine and my C team
colleagues. And I felt the same about the board. Working at the
intersection of tech and human rights (access to knowledge, free speech,
etc) was challenging and motivating and invigorating. I didn’t want to
leave and had every intention of staying many, many years. And I think my
colleagues and supervisor felt the same. But sometimes ... life happens.

Anyhow just wanted to give that true plug from the former General Counsel
at WMF who left much sooner than she wanted. And by the way, it is pretty
cool that the CEO and Board Chair of the Foundation supporting one of the
top tech platforms in the world are millennial women. (It’s International
Women’s Day. Had to add that!)
