Tech Forward is excited to welcome Marnie Webb to Nashville this September!
Marnie Webb is the CEO of Caravan Studios, a division of TechSoup, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Caravan Studios’ collaborative approach uses a theory of technology intervention to allow communities to respond to the issues they care about most. Caravan Studios has used this methodology to launch projects in the United States, Brazil, and Qatar. The work they do impacts survivors of human trafficking and domestic violence, youth who are in poverty, immigrant workers, and people who want greater food security. Caravan Studios has received funding from Microsoft Philanthropies, Vodafone Americas Foundation, Humanity United, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, among others.
Named one of the Top 10 Silicon Valley Influencers by San Jose Mercury News, Marnie is a sought after writer and speaker on innovation, community, and the social web. In 2008, she won NTEN “Person of the Year” award and was included in to the Nonprofit Times’ list of the 50 most influential leaders in the U.S. nonprofit sector and is the initiator of the NPTech tagging experiment.
Come and hear Marnie share Caravan Studios’ story of how they’ve developed participatory methodology and all the opportunities available for public good technology projects. Participants will leave with an understanding of this method and concrete examples of the benefits of using it.
