> Diversity of the Board is a universal concern, mine too. Being involved in HOT is a strong sign of embracing and working for diversity in OSM. Miriam is doing amazing work organizing in Mexico, across Latin America, and with women. Geoffrey has direct experience of mapping in Africa in both easy and very challenging contexts, helped organized SotM Africa, and is bringing together mappers from across the continent. OSM has a lot to learn from them, and if diversity of geography, language and gender in OSM is something you value, they are extremely qualified Board candidates to help us move.

Personally I find it inappropriate that a current board member gives
recommendations for voting.
