I'm Emily Temple-Wood, and I have been a member of the WIkimedia DC Board of Directors since October 2013 and am currently the Vice President. My role at WMDC is currently centered around our programs and events, especially those relating to systemic bias. I hail from Chicago, where I still live, and am an undergraduate at Loyola University Chicago. I love cats, knitting, and biology.
