With just a few weeks to go before we kick-start our awesome Symposium, we are very excited to announce our final keynote speaker – Sue Gardner.
Sue is the current Executive Director of Wikimedia Foundation, the non-profit organisation behind Wikipedia. She joined the foundation in 2007 and since then has increased the foundation’s readership and has raised $23 million in revenue. She was especially noted in the Forbes magazine as the person who “led the Wikipedia blackout in protest against SOPA” in 2012. Furthermore, in that year she was ranked as the 70th most powerful woman in the world!
A veteran journalist, she previously led the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation‘s website and online news outlets before joining Wikimedia.
Sue, we are looking forward to meeting you at NLS6 in Brisbane in February 2013.
