[Wikimedia-l] Helene Hahn and Mirjam Stegherr appointed to the WMDE board

Lukas Mezger-2
Dear fellow Wikimedians,

I am happy to share with you that the Wikimedia Deutschland board has
appointed Helene Hahn and Mirjam Stegherr as additional members to the
board.

*Helene *is a free knowledge enthusiast and a co-founder of Coding Da
Vinci, the first German open cultural data hackathon(1). For the past five
years, she has worked as a project manager for community and technology
projects in the fields of open government, data literacy and open culture
at the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany. *Mirjam *is a highly experienced
expert in media and communications. Having worked as a freelance
journalist, consultant, deputy editor-in-chief, press officer, and head of
communications for 20 years, she has extensive experience at all levels of
strategic communications.

Both will be full members of the board until the next board elections at
the general assembly in June 2020 and we are very much looking forward to
working with Helene and Mirjam.

The Wikimedia Deutschland board(2) of consists of up to 9 members. Seven
members are elected by the general assembly for a two-year term. After the
election, the seven board members can appoint up to two additional members
to the board. As the general assembly on 1 December 2018 resulted in the
election of six men and one woman, we decided to consider only applications
from non-male candidates for the appointed seats. Subsequently, we
published a profile with the skills and experiences which we considered to
be most important for our board. We are happy that this approach was very
successful: We received more than 80 recommendations and 16 applications of
highly qualified candidates. Through this process, we have made some
valuable experiences and contacts on which we want to build to further
increase the diversity of candidates in upcoming board elections.

Please join me in welcoming Helene und Mirjam to the Wikiverse!
Kind regards,

Lukas

Hi Lucas, Helen and Mirjiam.

WMDE's approach on this appointment of two new members of the board find me
extremely happy.
Professional skills and diversity are weighty factors in our movement and
considering only non-men applications to increase the diversity could be a
suggest in all those cases of affiliates where there are no female or non
binary figures on the board.

I congratulate you on your choice, and wish you a good job with Helen and
Mirjiam to whom I wish a warm welcome in the movement.

Sincerely,
Camelia (WikiDonne UG)

That is great news, Lukas!

I'm happy to see that more and more boards diverse their membership. I
think it's an important thing and a valuable contribution to the ability of
our organizations to see the big picture behind our current movement

Hi Lukas, Helene and Mirjam ,

I join Camelia and Itzik in congratulating Wikimedia DE for finding an
ingenious and clever solution for giving more gender diversity to the
board, and getting those two fantastic new acquisitions to the board in the
way!

I wish a very warm welcome to Helene and Mirjam into the Wikimedia universe
and community. :)
