Faits et chiffres

The World Wide Web Consortium achieves its mission by bringing diverse stake-holders together, under a clear and effective consensus-based process to develop high-quality standards based on contributions from the W3C Members, staff, and the community at large.

W3C is led by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, and Dr. Jeffrey Jaffe, W3C CEO. They are supported by a staff of technical experts who help coordinate technology development and manage the operations of the Consortium.

W3C Members and invited experts from the public provide energy to the groups that write W3C’s Web standards.

The broader Web community also plays an important role in reviewing and providing input on specifications; there are many ways to participate in W3C even as an individual.
