ThoughtWorks announcement5Karl Brown (Unlicensed)

Karl will be stepping back from the Governance Committee and ThoughtWorks will be dialing back their global/public work, focusing more on private sector.

Karl is continuing to discuss ongoing support with other ThoughtWorks teams, but TW China specifically is pulling back their engagement.

TW will continue to support any committed activities until completion.
