What I do at W3C

I work for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the Web standards consortium, based at MIT in the USA, ERCIM in Europe, Keio in Japan, and Beihang in China; I am based at the French Riviera site. I joined in January 1999 as administrative assistant.

In February 2015, I became Head of W3C Marketing & Communications. I maintain a detailed description of what I do.

Within the Communications team, I am in charge of the Consortium's communication strategy and messaging, W3C Advisory Board support, W3C in the press, translations and authorized translations. Also I am involved in community development and as such, I oversee the W3C social media and blogging.

History: I joined the Sophia Antipolis W3C Team in January 1999 as administrative assistant, became W3C Europe administration manager in December 2001. In February 2005, I became part of the W3C Communications team for 50% of my time, and moved to full-time in August 2007. In February 2015, I was appointed Acting Head of W3C Marketing & Communications.
