[Wikimedia-l] Thank you for our time together.
Dear fellow Wikimedians,



It is with great respect that I have tendered, and the board has accepted,
my resignation as Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation earlier
this week. I am both inspired by, and proud of, the many great things we
have all accomplished at the Foundation over the last two years, most
significantly reversing the loss of our editorial community. I would like
to thank our Board of Trustees
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Board_of_Trustees> and Advisors
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Advisory_Board>, our Foundation staff
<https://wikimediafoundation.org/wiki/Staff_and_contractors>, as well as
the many outstanding community members
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/The_Wikipedia_Community> for their support
and encouragement on this journey. I remain passionate about the value and
potential of open knowledge and Wikimedia to change the world. My last day
at the Foundation will be March 31, 2016.

Wikimedia occupies a special place in the world. It is a cultural and
technological revolution. Change is necessary to keep it thriving. In
bringing me in as the Executive Director of the Wikimedia Foundation the
Board tasked me with making changes
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Lila_Tretikov%27s_statement_on_Why_we%27ve_changed>
to serve the next generation and ensure our impact in the future. Driving
these changes has been challenging, and I have always appreciated the open
and honest discourse we have had along the way. However, I am moved by the
accomplishments we have achieved during this time:


-

Strategically, we laid out our summary of the vision for united in
knowledge
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=File:WMF_Strategy_Preview,_WMF_Metrics_Meeting_June_2015.pdf&page=50>
and future of Wikimedia last June.
-

Operationally, we have reformed our procedures and initiated key performance
metrics and reviews
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/10/20/foundation-quarterly-report-july-september-2015/>.

-

Technologically we have introduced innovative approaches such as machine
learning
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/11/30/artificial-intelligence-x-ray-specs/>
and mobile
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/01/15/immersive-mobile-experience/>
applications, started improvements in search
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/12/23/search-and-discovery-on-wikipedia/>,
grew translations
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2016/01/29/content-translation-50000-articles/>
and dramatically improved website performance
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/12/29/how-we-made-editing-wikipedia-twice-as-fast/>.
In 2015, we made visual editor the default for all new users on English
Wikipedia.
-

We united our community support departments and created a new community
tech team to address community needs
<https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/2015_Community_Wishlist_Survey/Status_report_1>.

-

Profoundly, for the first time in seven years, highly active editor
numbers have increased
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/09/25/wikipedia-editor-numbers/> and
overall editor decline has stopped.
-

Equitably, I am proud of our efforts to address the gender gap
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/2015/03/04/inspire-campaign-funds-gender-diversity/>,
our growing focus on site safety and anti-harassment
<http://blog.wikimedia.org/?s=harassment> initiatives and child
protection -- I believe these are essential to protecting the fundamental
principles of tolerance, open discourse and mutual respect -- our greatest
strengths.
-

We fought against censorship and surveillance
<http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/10/opinion/stop-spying-on-wikipedia-users.html?_r=0>,
which pose severe existential threats to our mission of free knowledge.
-

Financially, we grew rapidly in 2014 to seed and launch the Wikimedia
Endowment <https://15.wikipedia.org/endowment.html> and secure our
future for years to come.


I move on with confidence that the Foundation can meet new challenges in a
challenging environment. I believe in our ability to continue to lead
through this change. At this critical juncture for the Foundation, and for
the free and open knowledge movement as a whole, solidarity, creativity,
adaptability and passion will continue to propel our movement forward, and
empower our vision towards our future.

I will support the process of identifying our new leadership in every way
that I can, and offer my assistance to the Board as they conduct their
search for my successor. It has been an honor to serve and to contribute to
our great movement.




With warm regards,

Lila

Lila,

I don't want to get into what or who is right. The things I had to say I
already said in private forums. The discussions here and in others places
were already to heated and too longs to add more words.

Before we are movement, we are people. with feelings, with soul. I can not
even imagine how it was to be in your position during the last few months.
Reading the thing people wrote, the blames, the personal attacks. Some
people had right and justified concerns to raise, but sadly, we are great
movement, with great achievements, but we do not always treat and speak to
people with the respect they are entitled to.

I know many people disagreed with your strategy and your decisions, but as
I had the privilege to knew your personally during the last 2 years, I know
each one of them were truly in the favor of the movement in your personal
point of view.

Thank you for all the works during the last two years. For being available
to speak personally with each one of us. I learned a lot for each meeting
or conversation with you.

Thank you Lila, and good luck whatever will the roads will take you.

Re: [Wikimedia-l] Thank you for our time together. [ In reply to ]
Maybe I'm too far from the relevant stuffs but I feel like it was your
(implicit) mandate to be proven wrong.

There's a series of far deeper flaws within our ecosystem arising anytime
it is under pressure. The biggest one is having a Board which is sometimes
supposed to direct, sometimes to dictate, most of times to advice.
I hope your remarkable stepping down wont make us forget about those
underlying issues.

From the positive side I want to remember the efforts in gathering
*numbers* about some of the most challenging issues we're facing.

Ciao!

Best of luck in all of your future endeavors,
