Communications is a Wikimedia Foundation department. The teams in the department lead the Foundation's efforts to openly and effectively share information — about the Wikimedia movement, the Wikimedia projects, and the Wikimedia Foundation's work itself — with a global audience including volunteer editors, site readers and other stakeholders.
The Communications Department performs a variety of functions for the Foundation, such as maintaining relationships with the media, producing content for the Wikimedia Foundation website, managing the community blog Diff, and Wikimedia's social media platforms, informing research into emerging global audiences, developing creative materials, and coordinating campaigns to engage new audiences for Wikimedia's projects.
Head of the department and the Wikimedia Foundation's Chief Creative Officer is Heather Walls.
