About me

Hi there! I'm Jackie Koerner (like Turner with a K). I am from the Midwestern United States. I have been a Wikimedia project volunteer since 2016. I will continue to use my volunteer account for my activities outside of this professional role. Please visit my user page to learn more about my volunteer work.

I love to learn new things and enjoy connecting with people. Please contact me in the best way for you and I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.

My work

As of January 2021 I am supporting the community discussion of the Board of Trustees process updates. My goal is to engage with contributors on Meta and in the English speaking communities about Wikimedia's Board Governance Processes updates. I will hold discussions for feedback and employ active listening techniques. I will work hard every day for equity and inclusion within our communities.

I can talk civilly about our work even if you disagree with me or I disagree with you. I will not respond to comments or questions that are disrespectful to me, to my colleagues, or to anyone in our communities. I will not compromise on this.

Disclaimer: I work for or provide services to the Wikimedia Foundation, and this is the account I try to use for edits or statements I make in that role. However, the Foundation does not vet all my activity, so edits, statements, or other contributions made by this account may not reflect the views of the Foundation.
