Wikimedia Foundation announces Lisa Lewin as new Trustee

Lisa Lewin brings to the Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees over two decades of experience in leading and growing companies focused on educational media and technology.

Lisa Lewin, Managing Partner at Ethical Ventures, a New York City based management consulting firm, will be the newest member of the Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

The Wikimedia Foundation’s Board of Trustees oversees the Wikimedia Foundation and its work, and serves as the organization’s ultimate corporate authority. As an incoming trustee, Lisa will serve a two year term effective immediately.

Lisa has worked in strategic growth and development her whole career, helping launch new ventures and increase the impact and growth potential of legacy businesses. She began her career in research and consulting with The NPD Group and BCG before joining McGraw-Hill and rising to vice president of their professional education group.

She founded and led Mindgate Media, an education technology consultancy, and later joined Pearson plc as president of their teacher education group, eventually leading their global learning technology teams spanning six continents. In 2016 she joined The Ready, a consulting firm specializing in organizational transformation, where she remains a senior advisor. In 2018 she founded Ethical Ventures, which advises senior executives at corporations and large nonprofits on navigating change and building thriving organizations with a positive impact on society.

“I am thrilled to be joining an organisation that is committed to ensuring the world continues to support freely accessible sources of information. This is a critical mission given the shifts in the global internet space,” said Lisa.

Lisa’s career long commitment to connecting the worlds of education and technology matches her passion for the Wikimedia Foundation’s vision of bringing knowledge to every human being.

Lisa joins Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, Board Chair María Sefidari, Vice Chair Christophe Henner, and Board members Esra’a Al Shafei, Tanya Capuano, Dr. James Heilman, Dr. Dariusz Jemielniak, Raju Narisetti, and Nataliia Tymkiv.

“The Wikimedia Foundation Board of Trustees is fortunate to have Lisa Lewin joining us as a Trustee,” said María Sefidari, Board Chair. “Her capacity to connect technology with people who desire to learn will be invaluable as we begin to implement our Wikimedia 2030 strategic direction. I am confident she will both make a lasting impression on the Wikimedia movement and feel right at home in our diverse and global community of people who share that passion.”
