Just a few weeks ago, a second generation of Trustees took their seats on Sovrin Foundation’s Board. At that time, five individuals were elected to represent the growing Sovrin community. The Foundation is now looking to expand the Board by electing a few more Trustees.
Since the Board of Trustees represents identity holders around the world, the Sovrin Foundation is committed to diversity in membership. The Foundation encourages applications from individuals who bring diversity in perspective, background, and experience to the community. Volunteers need to be passionate about self-sovereign identity (SSI) and willing to dedicate their expertise, resources, and passion to the cause.
“One key goal of extending the Board of Trustees is to structurally embed diversity in the Foundation, accounting for particular interests of diverse stakeholder groups,” said Sam Smith, Chairman of the Board. “We strive for a mix of SSI community people from various backgrounds and locations as well as well-networked individuals from, for example, identity, open source, industry, and philanthropic communities who identify themselves with Sovrin’s values and Identity for All mission.”
The Sovrin Foundation Board of Trustees have a wide set of skills and perspectives as a group. As individuals, they have the passion to be volunteer leaders in a world where community-led governance will make a big difference for identity holders worldwide. Board members have the opportunity to lead the Foundation’s strategy in light of its vision, mission, and objectives, ultimately having direct influence on the world’s leading SSI community.
