Term[edit]

What is the "leadership team"? Is it a new term for what was formerly known as the "C-level team"? --213.243.147.70 21:54, 11 March 2016 (UTC)[]

It is not a new term, it is interchangeable with "C-level team". The term "C-Level" does not always translate well, and "C-Level" also sometimes causes confusion as not all the members of the team have "Chief XYZ" formatted titles (which is the origins of "C-Level"). Leadership Team is what they are technically called (also how they are referenced in things like surveys, internal documentation, etc.). So it is not a new term, it is an alternative and more "official" term. --Gregory Varnum (WMF) (talk) 01:49, 12 March 2016 (UTC)[]
The document says "The leadership team currently has the following members: Maggie Dennis (Community Engagement), Katherine Maher (Communications), Jaime Villagomez (Finance), Lisa Seitz Gruwell (Advancement), Geoff Brigham (Legal), Wes Moran (Product/Technology), and Joady Lohr (HR)." so basically C levels and interim ED.
