Sue Gardner Biography

One of Forbes ‘World's 100 Most Powerful Women’, Sue Gardner, formerly Director of Wikimedia, is now developing strategies on The Tor Project. 

With a focus on increased participation, reach, and quality, and with a recognised talent in the areas of long-term sustainability and organizational maturity, Sue was one of the Foundation's free-knowledge project’s most important champions.

The classic radio show As It Happens was where Sue’s career began. Creating high-quality, award-winning programming, and then moving into journalism, where she specialised in pop culture, social issues and media analysis, turned her into an international culture guru, with specialist knowledge of a variety of social issues, including the rise and fall of rave culture in the UK; the return of the death penalty to New York and changing feminist attitudes towards pornography....

Sue’s rise up the business ranks led her to the most senior position at CBC.CA, the internet platform for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. She took the reins and the corporation experienced an unprecedented surge in viewing and listening figures and  launched many new major multimedia technologies, including podcasting, breaking news alerts, and blogging.

She then moved to Wikimedia, - a nonprofit charitable organization founded to encourage ‘the growth, development and distribution of free, multilingual, educational content, and to providing the full content of these wiki-based projects to the public free of charge.’ Since leaving, she has become an advocate for the public interest online.

Sue is a member of the Online News Association, the Society for News Design, Women in Film and Television, the Canadian Association of Journalists and Canadian Women In Communications.
