Leadership Team

Robyn Arville

Robyn is the Chief Talent and Culture Officer for the Wikimedia Foundation. She brings more than 20 years of human resources experience to the role, with expertise in organizational design and effectiveness, workforce planning, talent development, performance facilitation, compensation and benefits, and employee engagement and well-being. Prior to joining Wikimedia, she was the Head of People and Culture at the Public Library of Science (PLOS).

Before PLOS, Robyn spent six years at Humanity United, a human rights philanthropic foundation, and has worked at various healthcare and biotechnology organizations, from small startups to large global organizations. In each organization where she worked, she focused her energy on establishing a values-driven culture, bringing deep commitment to cultivating employee experiences that build connections and community within the workplace.

A fan of the great outdoors, Robyn lives in the East Bay with her husband and five-year-old daughter, who is her greatest teacher and inspires her toward curiosity and mindfulness each day.
