Thank you, Shadi, for your numerous, and consistently substantial contributions to Web accessibility in your current role, which no doubt will continue as you take up the new opportunity.
In particular, I wish to note your long-term involvement in, and support for, connecting W3C/WAI with research and with the research community, particularly in the former Research and Development Working Group, and more recently in the accessibility of emerging Web technologies.
I wish you much success in the new position.

Dear Chairs and Facilitators,

Ref: https://nam10.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2Fblog%2F2021%2F06%2Floving-and-leaving-w3c%2F&amp;data=04%7C01%7Cjjwhite%40ets.org%7C67eff308a0434459d2d208d93666b02a%7C0ba6e9b760b34fae92f37e6ddd9e9b65%7C0%7C0%7C637600636940727295%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C1000&amp;sdata=Sf4KTb3QufM3ux1AfGnYX%2FT%2FwJqEo6rUDGLFnEer8Tg%3D&amp;reserved=0

After a long process of considering many perspectives, I have finally decided to take up a new exciting role outside W3C. This is one of the most difficult decisions I've had to take, and it is not easy leaving W3C after 18 amazing years of ground-breaking successes with WAI. Yet some say there is life beyond W3C, and I'm curious to explore it...

My last day at W3C will be 30 September 2021. I'm working closely with Judy on transition and hand-over plans, to minimize the impact on WAI and to ensure continuity on my responsibilities and work areas.

I will not be far away. I'll continue working on digital accessibility for a large tech company, and will continue to be actively involved in the essential work of the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

I want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your fantastic contributions! I look forward to working with you in another role.

Please let me know if you have questions or want to follow-up offline.
