🌸 About me

Hello there! I'm Léa, or Auregann, and I started as a volunteer in the Wikimedia movement in 2010. Since then, I've been involved in various projects related to community engagement, local group coordination, training and events organisation. I love organizing things in collaboration with others, help people connect with each other and support Wikimedians in their activities!

Since 2022, I share my experience in organizing onsite and online events with various organizations in the movement, as an event coordinator, project manager or advisor. For transparency purposes, you will find below the various activities that I am or used to be involved in, the organizations I've been working for, and the Wikimedia accounts related to these activities. Note that these activities usually do not involve editing content on the projects, but rather "meta" pages, documentation, talk pages, help pages, etc.

🌿 With Wikimedia Deutschland

Since 2016, I've been working with Wikimedia Deutschland and making edits with the account Lea Lacroix (WMDE). As part of my work with Wikimedia Deutschland, I coordinate various events and projects related to Wikidata and together with the Wikidata community:

  • The international conference WikidataCon (the first editions of the conference took place in 2017 and 2019 and 2021)
  • Wikidata's decentralized birthday (the latest one being the 10th birthday in 2022) ;
  • A series of online events for the Wikidata community: Data Quality Days 2022, Data Reuse Days 2022, Data Quality Days 2021, 30 Lexic-o-days ;
  • I've also been supporting projects run by volunteers and other Wikimedia organizations, such the Celtic Knot Wikimedia Language Conference in 2020, 2021 and 2022, in partnership with Wikimedia UK, and the remote hackathons in 2020 and 2021, in partnership with the Wikimedia Foundation ;
  • Various other Wikidata meetups, workshops, presentations and gatherings, for example at Wikimania 2017, 2018 and 2019.

From 2016 to 2020, I was also taking care of communication between the Wikidata development team and the community, announcing features, collecting feedback, and editing the Wikidata newsletter.

⚙️ With the Wikimedia Foundation Since November 2022, I'm operating with the account LLacroix-WMF in the frame of my activities with the Wikimedia Foundation.

My main role is to coordinate the organization of the Wikimedia Hackathon 2023.
