Core strategy team[edit]

The core team is composed of individuals from the Wikimedia Foundation and williamsworks:

  • Whitney Williams, williamsworks
  • Ed Bland, williamsworks
  • Shannon Keith, williamsworks
  • Guillaume Paumier, Senior Analyst, Wikimedia Foundation
  • Suzie Nussel, organizational strategy consultant, Wikimedia Foundation

This team will shepherd the overall process and keep all groups involved and engaged. The architects (Whitney, Ed, Guillaume) will frame and co-design the conversations within our communities and beyond, and transform outputs into a meaningful, knowledge-driven strategic direction for the movement. They will work in close collaboration with, and seek counsel from, track leads, working groups, and volunteer advisors. The project/stakeholder managers (Suzie and Shannon) will work with track leads to drive engagement, coordinate the tracks and support them as needed, and manage tasks, deadlines, and budgets for the overall process.

The languages for which we are hiring are:
