CWCs generally comprise of subject matter researchers, such as members affiliated to STEM(Science Technology Engineering Mathematics).
CWC members may also come from diverse fields of industry, academia, art and music.
CWCs are classified into two types:
Each project has a self governing and autonomous Core Working Group.
"Project CWC" members are generally the core work group for a specific project of the Foundation.
Primary Role: CWC appointed to a "Project" also maintains the project's lifecycle within the Foundation's community.
Self Governance: Steering Council members, (appointed to a "Project") along with members from the Project CWC, independently decide on the workings and functioning of their Project CWC. These members collectively decide and maintain, and observe the protocols of their Project CWC's governance on their own, well within the Foundation's guiding principles and this Open Constitution.
CWC chair is the member who leads each Project CWC. All the members of Steering Council(appointed to all projects) ratify the proposed constitution of a project's CWC.
