Oi gente, no caso, diretora ;-)
Tive oportunidade de encontrá-la duas vezes (uma em San Francisco e outra
no Rio, quando veio para a Rio +20). Gostei muito dela. Aparentemente,
apesar das doferenças de culturas, falamos a mesma língua.

>  Hi -
> I want to introduce Anasuya Sengupta as the new Director, Global Learning
> and Grantmaking at the Wikimedia Foundation.  She will be starting on
> Monday, July 2.  In this role, Anasuya will lead our work in support of the
> Funds Dissemination Committee, work with Asaf Bartov on grant-making and
> with Jessie Wild in helping us to plan, monitor, evaluate and learn from
> our programmatic work in a new team area, Global Learning and Evaluation
> that Jessie will be leading (more soon on this).  She will also serve as a
> close thought-partner for me and the rest of the GD team in the leadership
> of our work.
> I am thrilled that Anasuya is joining us. She brings a deep passion for
> social justice and an understanding of the power of free knowledge as an
> enabler of opportunity for everyone. She will help us hold to our
> commitments to increase the diversity of our community and has great
> experience working collaboratively to change communities for the better.
> She is also a really interesting person who I think we will all enjoy being
> around and learning from.
> Below is an introduction that Anasuya prepared.
> For those of you who will be at Wikimania, I know Anasuya is excited to
> meet with all of you there.
> Please join me in welcoming Anasuya to our team.
> Best,
> Barry

> ...but until we meet in person:
> I am an activist turned grant-maker, who has worked nationally, regionally,
> and internationally, to build and strengthen multi-generational feminist
> leadership and networks, and to amplify voices from the margins – whether
> across gender, sexuality, class, caste, race, age, geography or language. I
> grew up in north Karnataka (southern India), and returned to work in this
> part of the world after my undergraduate degree in Economics, as a
> Programme Officer at Samuha, a rural development organisation. I took its
> lessons with me into an M.Phil. in Development Studies at Oxford, where I
> studied as a Rhodes Scholar. I led a UNICEF initiative with the Karnataka
> police from 2001-2007, designing and implementing a state wide system of
> response to issues of violence against women and children. Over the same
> period, I served as Associate and researcher with Gender at Work, an
> international knowledge network for gender equality. I co-edited and wrote
> for the Association of Women's Rights in Development (AWID)
> publication, *Defending
> Our Dreams: global feminist voices for a new generation* (AWID and Zed
> Books, 2006), arguably the first international anthology of young feminist
> analyses and experience. I have founded campaigns, and been involved with
> national and international networks against religious and cultural
> fundamentalisms, and for sexual and reproductive rights and women's health.
> In 2007, I moved from Bangalore to Berkeley, as a Visiting Scholar at UC
> Berkeley and the Managing Trustee of a small Stanford-based family
> foundation funding in South India. Over the past three years, I have been
> Regional Program Director for Asia and Oceania at the Global Fund for
> Women, one of the world's largest grant-making organisations exclusively
> for women's human rights. In this capacity, I have overseen over 300 grants
> to women-led organisations in the region – from Afghanistan to Kiribati -
> and helped develop a framework for evaluating and learning our impact on
> organisational growth and movement sustainability. My interest in the
> politics of technology has been from the point of view of a women’s rights
> activist, academic, and grant-maker. With Bangalore as home, surrounded by
> friends and family who are progressive technologists, I started questioning
> the politics of the software and hardware that is ubiquitous in our lives –
> and ended up using Ubuntu Linux on my laptop. However, the Free/Libre and
> Open Source Movement is not simply about technologies; at its heart is the
> feminist principle that governs my politics: if knowledge is power, then
> the empowerment of the marginalised is through a democratisation of
> knowledge, and the equality of the future is through a deconstruction of
> the privileging powers of access, voice, representation and participation.
> I am passionate about poetry (a haiku a day keeps my blues away), theatre,
> and music, and challenge myself with yoga. I tend to stick with my
> post-colonial British form of spelling and punctuation ('s' over 'z' and a
> nuanced use of the Oxford comma) unless explicitly asked not to do so.
