Frank Schulenburg is the Wikimedia Foundation's Senior Director of Programs.

Since the very beginning of my involvement with Wikimedia, I've been passionate about programmatic work. I truly believe that programs play a key role in improving Wikipedia's quality, getting more people to edit Wikipedia and in providing access to Wikipedia's content to people around the globe. My vision is to create a world where programs across countries are effective and have maximum impact through evaluation and shared learning.
