New IESG

  • Jari ArkkoIETF Chair

Every year, the IETF selects its leadership through the nominations committee or NomCom process. Today, the committee has announced our new steering group (IESG) members.

Every year, the IETF selects its leadership through the nominations committee or NomCom process. Today, the committee has announced our new steering group (IESG) members.

The new members are Alissa Cooper (Cisco), who will be new IETF Chair as I am stepping down. Warren Kumari (Google), will be our new Operations and Management Area AD. And Eric Rescorla (Mozilla) becomes the new Security Area AD. Together with the continuing ADs, this is a great team, and the IETF is in extremely capable hands!

When the new members get seated, we will be saying goodbye and thank you to two long-serving ADs: Stephen Farrell (TCD) in the Security Area and Joel Jaeggli (Fastly) in the Operations and Management Area. Their service to the community, dedication to making the Internet better, and rational approach to contentious issues have made the IESG, the IETF, and the Internet better.

Notably, with these appointments we’ll be continuing to demonstrate gender diversity in our leadership. Not only has Alissa been selected as the first female chair, but we’ll continue to have five female area directors serving in the IESG, the most we’ve had at one time. They are in these roles because they are the best people for their roles, but I think this also sets a great example for other tech organisations to follow in gender diversity. I would like to challenge other standards organisations to top our results.

More information in the announcement.
