Hello Foundation members,

I'd like to announce my candidacy for a third term as a GNOME Foundation Board member.

As President and Chairperson of the Board for the last two years, I have played an active role in setting the pace for the Board’s work. For example, I suggested and pushed for a Foundation hackfest to happen so that we could get together and create infrastructure to streamline our decision process around various issues that often slow us down in meetings.

One of the many things we streamlined during our hackfest in Berlin [1] is the budgeting and spending processes. As a Board member who actively participates in the Engagement team, I also advocated for a larger budget to support our community and increase our efforts to promote GNOME around the world. The enablement of TransferWise as a payment option was also something that I pushed, which allows more community members to receive funds with fewer fees.

This year, I also started to do more public speaking about GNOME and worked on increasing engagement in more regions of the world. As President, I was invited to represent the Foundation in a number of conferences and events in Asia and Latin America, such as GNOME.Asia, COSCon’17, and FLISoL in Bogotá. Since participating in those events, I have acted as a bridge to try to bring global and regional teams together, and to get some newcomers I met to become active members of GNOME.

While we have been able to increase our contributor base in traditionally less represented locales this year, there is still a lot to be done to stimulate growth in these areas. If elected, I’ll continue to advocate for policies that support our growth and make participating in this awesome community more accessible to all.

Thanks for your consideration, and if elected, I look forward to serving on the Board again!
