Introducing Anasuya Sengupta, Director Global Learning and Grantmaking at the 
Wikimedia Foundation

A Anasuya poderá trazer uma importante e fundamental transformação no 
momvimento Wikimedia mundial.

Tive a oportunidade de conversar com ela recentemente e fiquei extremamente 
impressionado e motivado.Para mim, um resumo de nossa conversa seria aldo como; 
se em 2001 a Wikipedia inovou no modo de construir conhecimento, agora temos os 
recursos e a experiência para inovar não somente no modo, como também no 
produto construído pela soma do conhecimento humano, integrando vozes até então 

Enfim, algo para celebrarmos e apoiarmos muito!

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.

...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.
