Our People

When we aren’t reporting the best of citizen and social web for you on Global Voices, we are busy being bloggers, journalists, academics, and human rights activists.

Here’s a complete list of our dynamic global team of volunteer writers, subeditors and English translators.

Multi-lingual Newsroom

We aim to share stories beyond the boundaries of geography and language, so we organize our newsroom around regions, languages and subjects.

We also work to ensure that language is not a barrier to understanding and embracing all people and stories. Our Lingua editors help translate our stories into 30 languages through teams of volunteer translators.


Global Voices is driven by a broad team of region, subject and language editors, as well as managers responsible for the day-to-day management and strategic vision of Global Voices.  Find the person responsible in our leadership team.


Our founders, volunteers and staff are represented on our Board, along with some of the most influential innovators in global online media. Meet the board.


Global Voices Advisors are friends of the community who offer invaluable advice and suggestions as they keep watch on our development. Here are our advisors.
