statement (Not more than 450 words) About me :

Wikipedian since 2011, Wikimedian since 2015, I'm currently member of the Board of Wikimedia France and member of the Phase 2 UCoC Drafting Committee (resigning, should I be elected).

Job : assistant in Sector social networks of Digital publishing Department / European Television ARTE.

I’m also a visual artist and I do photography, illustration and painting.

As a nonprofit veteran, I loved to participate as a volunteer to the follow up of the implementation of the worldscale WHO International Code and a UNICEF Initiative. I learned a lot from the way NGOs and UN agencies collaborate and work together to create and implement policies and programs.

About my goals :

  • As an old feminist, I would be happy that Wikimedia spaces move towards parity.
  • I’m interested in policies and law, and the conditions of successful implementation of strategies.
  • I consider that if we don’t have the tools we need, we should create them.
  • I suggest that we use more strict methodologies in order to avoid a « mill eating the grain » syndrome.
  • I often have the feeling that there is some unease between the Community and the Foundation. I will be careful that the interests of the WMF still keep aligned with the philosophy of the Movement.
