Introductory statement / Application summary.
This section to be translated. (150 word maximum)
经济学家和金融专业人士,维基媒体活动家,自2004年起担任编辑,相信自我组织的社区可以建立分布式组织。

互联网不断变化,需要对产品和研究进行更多投资。2030年战略的实施需要更多的资源给志愿者、附属机构和分散的能力中心。随着WMF在预算、人员和复杂性方面的不断增长,我们需要一个强大的董事会来提供愿景、指导和监督,我相信我将是一个有价值的补充。

I combine a financial & quantitative experience with a long history of work with editors and growing an affiliate to better serve volunteers and audiences. I will share the perspective of medium-size and medium-wealth communities, which work hard and are resourceful, bold and creative to bring new, wonderful things. Nevertheless, my FDC and corporate past helps me understand the WMF with over 500 staff, and I also know challenges of volunteering well.

I believe my professional and wikibackground allows me to strongly contribute:

  • Quant Economist+MBA, "full-stack" quantitative and qualitative background, over 15 years in banking compliance and risk should prepare me for the strategy and management. Also 10 years on the affiliate board and committees gave me experience in programmatic and strategic planning, resource allocation and capacity building, and an additional perspective on governance, fiduciary duties and landscape of Wikimedia entities.
  • Experience in datawarehouses stewardship and analysis should help me understand platforms. My profession merges finance, law, quant and IT, so I should understand complexities and fragile issues.
  • Also second studies in psychology + audit/supervision including quant/formal solutions and governance should make me a meaningful partner to discussions on AI/ML solutions.
  • Experience in wikiadvocacy and in an EU legislation process as a tech expert should also help.
  • I can also contribute in internal control, audit, communities/affiliates/hubs or possibly finance.
在世界各地的歷練。我們對非洲、南亞、東亞、東南亞和太平洋,以及拉丁美洲和加勒比海的經歷特別有興趣。我們認為在這些地區的經驗可以幫助擴大理事會的能力,來實現更公平參與的運動策略目標。儘管我們承認其他經驗也可能提供重要的貢獻。

I was born in the Polish People's Republic, the second most-populous communist and Eastern Bloc country in Europe, and afterwards experiencing a transitional economy for ~15 years after market reforms. Because of this fact, admittedly I did not have many opportunities to having lived experiences in the regions of Africa, South Asia, East and South East Asia & Pacific, and Latin America & Caribbean. Poland, and the CEE in general, is a part of the world where people have such experiences very rarely: for many years passports, visas and money were difficult to obtain, and then more many years most people were trying to earn for living and slowly catching up the western world. Thus, for my region experience in "Africa, South Asia, East and South East Asia & Pacific, and Latin America & Caribbean" has been reserved for the privileged few. Very few.

Common people in the former Eastern Bloc usually could only dream of visiting South America or Caribbeans. They rather experienced an economic hardship of the 80's (when a good salary meant 28 USD a month) and 90's. Then millions migrated to the Western countries seeking for a job (and millions still migrate, especially from the countries east of Poland). Fortunately, finally Poland experienced an economic growth allowing me to do my work in Warsaw, nevertheless the wealth gap is still visible and a substantial number of my classmates lives in the UK, Western EU or USA/Canada.

Because of reasons explained above, I can understand some shared issues: emigration and fractured communities, limited access to technology and institutional help, larger economic disparities. Also every economist should understand the world so I educate myself (and take my opportunity to travel, especially exploring the large cities. Then I can see how different particular cultures and continents are, and how much more there is to understand. Having said that, I am no expert in e.g. Southern Asia, even when my boss is Indian and lives in Chennai. The FDC, where I enjoyed work with colleagues from 5 continents, taught me I am here to read and listen. We have a lot to learn from each other and I am hoping the communities and individuals will always have many ways to speak up, highlight important issues and explain particular complexities.

The second thing I bring to the table is solidarity. CEE cooperation is found on cooperation and helping each other, where the more capable are trying to help smaller communities. My region has a long tradition of shared experience, common projects, and support from e.g. my chapter to the individuals in the region. To be able to help better and a larger number of people, we are working on the CEE Hub - as everyone deserves a good support.

Providing a safe and collaborative space is literally vital for us all.

Firstly, serving on a Wikimedia affiliate Board means both moral and legal responsibilities: for the volunteers, staff, organisation, legal and reputational needs, and many more. On top of that, Wikimedians are passionate: about their work, their values, and their relations - and the dark side of this passion are tensions, burn-outs, even wrong behaviour. Helping the communities to find better ways and standards is a highly demanding task. So it is maintaining and building Wikimedia as a welcoming space: from editing projects, through the meetings to the employee issues - this work will never end.

These challenge became even more difficult in times of political instability, shrinking democracies and even physical threat in my region, and I am happy that the WMF is trying to tackle these issues.

Unfortunately, my duties mean I should not give any specific detail but I am hoping I have helped to solve much more issues than I have helped to create.

Poland is a very monoethnic (which is changing) and racially non-diverse country, nevertheless my chapter and me personally are aiming to create the best-possible experience for the underrepresented groups within our means.

Obvious and visible across many languages and demographies is the gender gap, both as we think of the editors, as well as topics presented by Wikimedia. Hence e.g. dedicated actions we run each year (formerly), as well as endorsement (and my personal participation) in e.g. WikiGap. Certainly from the organisational perspective I could not allow any discrimination; I have personally hired more women than men, and WMPL is aiming to provide proper working conditions. Also we are trying our best that the socioeconomic, health and similar factors are taken care properly and the money, disability etc. do not eliminate our community members from participation in our actions or scholarships.

Particular gaps and initiatives are countless, however the important issue from my perspective is the general fact that editing proves to be unwelcoming to the vast majority of people reading, or even trying to edit Wikipedia. Safe culture of friendliness and respect is my dream; and even if it is very difficult to achieve, my chapter is trying and building new solutions oriented at volunteers - who are our treasure.
