ORCID’s Executive Director, Laure Haak, is Leaving the Organization
From Laure’s Blog Post:
After eight years of living and breathing the world of research infrastructure and persistent identifiers, I have decided to step back and allow myself to take a broader view. That’s right: I am leaving ORCID.
As my symphony with ORCID comes to its end, the organization is starting its next one. My next part? I am taking a break to enjoy the music and explore the polyphony of individual, team, and community responsibilities and rights in collaborative change efforts. I am planning a new venture to help public good start-ups develop foundational principles and to guide organizations in adapting to and adopting virtual workspaces. Stay tuned!
On behalf of the Board, I wish to acknowledge the outstanding contribution Laure Haak has made in building ORCID to what it is today. With confidence in the organization and the team, Laure will be directing her energy and skills to founding her own company. Laure is the founding Executive Director of ORCID and has dedicated the last eight years to building it from an idea into a reality. Her passion, dedication, and knowledge of all things ORCID are legendary.
Laure has built an outstanding team of Directors who will, together with the Board, ensure that we don’t miss a beat as we seek out another outstanding candidate to take ORCID through its next stage of development. I will be working closely with the Board, Laure, and the team on transition arrangements and we will provide further details before the end of May.
