Hi all,

This job is very relevant to organizers and community members on the
African and Indian lists, and the WikiSource community. Do try to share the
listing with folks you think would be interested.

Cheers,

Alex

Hi All,

I am really excited to share with you the opening of a new job working
within the Programs Team at the Wikimedia Foundation: a Program Officer
focused on GLAM and Underrepresented Heritage.

As part of orienting our team to better support the Wikimedia Movement
direction, we hope this role can help us to better support tactics and
strategies that are becoming important among emerging communities wanting
to get involved in GLAM programs -- including, for example, leveraging
digitization, WikiSource and Wiki Loves type events to document
marginalized knowledge. They will be working closely with our existing GLAM
team, including Alex Stinson and Sandra Fauconnier, to document and expand
the impact of GLAM partnership in the movement, and to help us advance the
larger Equity and Infrastructure goals of the movement direction.

We also hope that this role helps our team build increased depth of
experience with Wikimedia communities outside of North America and Europe,
where existing GLAM communities have a strong community of practice and
from which Sandra and Alex (and Ben, the Programs team director) have deep
backgrounds.

If you know someone who is enthusiastic about or has deep experience
facilitating GLAM-Wiki or similar community initiatives, please share the
job announcement with them: https://boards.greenhouse.io/
wikimedia/jobs/1236692

Cheers,

Alex
