[board-discuss] Candidacy to the BoD elections: Marina Latini

Who am I:
Dear Community,
my name is Marina Latini, Italian and 33 years old. I studied Computer
Science at the University of Perugia. I’m a free software advocate since
2007, promoting free software and open standards. In 2010, I was one of
the first Italian members of the LibreOffice community. I’ve been an
active member of the Fedora Project from 2009 to 2013, and an openSUSE
advocate since October 2011. I’m involved in several events, migrations
and trainings related to LibreOffice both in the public sector and in
schools. Starting from 2013 I’m working at Studio Storti as team lead of
the LibreOffice Division. In the past 2 years I was honored to be a
member of the TDF Board of Directors and I’m thankful to all the people
that rely on me for this important role.

Why you should vote me:
From the very beginning of my career, I was focused on the relationship
between society and technologies, remarking where was possible, the
importance of free software and open standards adoption. I had the
opportunity to get a job where I can share my passion and the knowledge
acquired during these years. Thanks to TDF community and the election as
member of Board of Director, I had the possibility to maximize my
efforts and working hard for one of the biggest community projects in
free software history. A lot of things have been done, but is not still
enough; together we can achieve more, spreading all over the world all
the good things that this project has been able to realize. I feel that
I have still a lot to offer to TDF, for the people of the community and
for the ones that will come. Our project is growing fast with
contributors from several countries and we need to focus much more on
lowering the threshold barrier, being a real welcoming community.
Keeping in mind our charitable entity we can’t forget to interact with
schools and university, spreading the knowledge and mentoring new
contributors. Finally, I would like that our community will become as
much as possible inclusive, and never let out who, just in appearance,
looks like different from us; openness is a state of mind.

What are your question about the future of TDF and LibreOffice? Feel
free to keep in touch with me.

Full name: Marina Latini
Corporate affiliation: Studio Storti Srl (Italian company member of the
Advisory board)

75 words candidacy official statement:
In the last 2 years, I’ve been honoured to serve in TDF BoD. We have
done a lot and to achieve our purpose we can do much more. I will put
all the gained experience in order to make our community more inclusive
and open, lowering the entry barrier and avoiding exclusion. Freedom and
inclusivity are the keys of a successful community and I would see a TDF
inspired by these values.
