The RFC specifies that there shall be a specialist team that can be reached for help, advice, and possible actions regarding harassment concerns.

They are preparing for this role, working on their operating practices as defined by the RFC, and we are setting up additional training for them. I am though happy to have them serving in this role, given that they have a lot of experience. Allison and Pete of course have a long experience about the IETF culture, topics, and leadership roles. In addition, Pete has volunteer experience from violence and discrimination related tasks. Linda Klieforth has been the acting ombudsperson for the IETF since 2013, and is the head of HR at ISOC. And Allison has a lot of experience about the way IETF selects leadership.
