Pledge of Personal Commitment

Florence Devouard-3
As a member of the board of trustees of the Wikimedia Foundation, I,
Florence Devouard, am committed to Wikimedia Foundation’s goal to
establish and maintain the highest level of public confidence in its
accountability. I have personally committed to follow the standards set
out below, which represent the Wikimedia Foundation’s conflict of
interest policies:

I will conduct my activities with the board of trustees of Wikimedia
Foundation so that I do not advance or protect my own interests, or the
private interests of others with whom I have a relationship, in a way
that is detrimental to the interests of, or to the fundamental mission
of, Wikimedia Foundation.

In every instance in which I represent the Wikimedia Foundation, I will
conduct my activities in a manner to best promote the interests of
Wikimedia Foundation.

In all matters that come before the board of trustees for a vote that
may favorably impact my own financial interests, or the private
interests of others with whom I have a financial relationship, or any
organization of which I am a part, I will reveal that relationship and
abstain from a vote in the matter.

When a conflict of interest arises, or when a potential conflict of
interest emerges, I will promptly disclose that conflict, or potential
conflict, to the Executive Director of Wikimedia Foundation and to the
Chairman of its board of trustees and seek a resolution of that issue.

Entered into on this the 17th day of October, 2006.
Florence Devouard
Member, Board of Trustees
Wikimedia Foundation, Inc.
