パトリシオ・ロレンテからのメッセージ

2016年3月10日、パトリシオ・ロレンテより、ウィキメディア財団の理事の交代"が送付されました。

こんにちは、

ウィキメディア財団のリーダーシップチームが暫定理事についての提案をしてくれ、そして理事会が支持されたことを大変うれしく思います。3月14日ひょり、現チーフコミュニケーションオフィサーのキャサリン・メイハー が暫定理事となります。熟慮してくれた上級管理職及びこの役割を引き受けてくれたキャサリンにお礼を申し上げます。

暫定理事の選出に当たっては、上級管理職が信頼構築やコミュニケーションの改善・重要な役職者の選任などを含むここ数か月での優先事項を特定しました。そしてこの優先事項や他の重要な事象に対処するのに、キャサリンが適任であると判断しました。また、キャサリンの選任により、ほかの理事は、経営やファンドレイジング、人事機能の強化など重要な組織上の役割に集中することができます。詳細は、考慮事項と選考プロセスをご参照ください.

キャサリンはこれまで2年間にわたり最高コミュニケーション責任者として財団での業務に携わって来ました。この間、組織と運動における必要性にかなう多角的で有効なチームを作り上げ、他部署やコミュニティと緊密に連携してきています。また新たな能力を慎重に取り入れ、チームを過渡期において導き、他の最高責任者と連携しながら戦略の実行と年間計画の舵取りにおいて重要な役割を果たしました。ともに働く人の話をよく聞いて力づけるような人物です。

For those who don’t know Katherine, she’s been a longtime advocate for global open communities, culture, and technology. She previously led advocacy for the international digital rights organization Access Now, where she worked on freedom of expression, access to information, and privacy. She has supported the efforts of citizens and governments around the world to deepen transparency and participation in her roles at the World Bank, National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, and UNICEF (where her team built wikis for youth participation in major global issues). She is a member of the advisory board of the Open Technology Fund.

With interim leadership in place, our next step as the Board is to move quickly to plan and implement the search for a permanent Executive Director. We will be working together over the coming weeks to clarify roles and responsibilities in this search, and identify the best way for community and staff to participate. We want this process to be inclusive and incorporate many voices. We look forward to sharing an update on our progress toward the end of next week.

As interim Executive Director, Katherine will report to the Board. Geoff Brigham will continue serving as Board Secretary, and Jaime Villagomez as Board Treasurer, reporting to the Board in those capacities. As of March 14, Katherine's reports include the C-team: Geoff Brigham, Jaime Villagomez, Maggie Dennis, Lisa Gruwell, Joady Lohr, and Wes Moran. The Communications team will continue to report to Katherine for the time being, with support from the leadership of Juliet Barbara and Heather Walls.

ありがとうございました。

キャサリン・メイハーからのメッセージ

This message, "Re: Wikimedia Foundation executive transition update", was sent by Katherine Maher on 10 March 2016.

Thank you, Patricio.

I want to thank the Board for this opportunity, and for their confidence in the Foundation. I also want to thank community members and staff for continuing to be such committed advocates for our future -- your passion and belief in our movement and purpose have been tremendous things to behold.

As a movement, we’ve had some challenges lately. We’ve started on a process of change, but as Lydia Pintscher recently reminded us, “Change happens at the speed of trust.” We will need to work together over these coming months to build that trust, and open critical lines of communication and accountability. I get the sense from many people that that’s exactly what they’d like to do: absorb the lessons we’ve learned, re-engage with each other, and get back to advancing our global movement.

At the Foundation, we have an opportunity to center around our values, and practice open and collaborative communication. During the interim period, I want to get things working well and improve transparency and communication, both internally and with the communities. We will work to create a supportive, fair environment where people can get things done, engage with their colleagues and community members, and understand how their work has an impact on our mission. This includes delivering on important deadlines for the Annual Plan and strategy, filling key roles, and making progress on issues raised in our recent engagement survey.

We are committed to delivering the first version of the 2016-2017 Annual Plan no later than April 1st for community and FDC review, and are on track to meet this deadline. The WMF 2016-2018 strategy development is also underway, with a draft version open for comments until March 18. Over the coming weeks, we’ll be moving forward with our Chief Technology Officer (CTO) search, and working with the Talent and Culture team to reinvest in our culture. As new other emerge, we’ll work together to prioritize them.

To accomplish all of this, we are going to need your help. I want to hear from you about what you would like to achieve in this interim period. This includes how we can collaborate together to prepare the organization and movement to welcome our next Executive Director. The Foundation is prepared to actively support the Board in the search, and we will work closely with them to share important information and create opportunities to give feedback throughout the process.

Just a few weeks ago, we marked the 15th birthday of the movement. Millions of people around the world shared their love for Wikimedia. It was a celebration of why we do what we do, and how much joy the movement brings people everywhere. That’s something I try to keep in mind every day.

敬具、
キャサリン
