If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?
It would definitely be Indira Gandhi, because I’m intrigued by her logic in imposing the Emergency in India, and who – even though widely considered dictatoria- is still considered as a champion of democracy.
What motivates you to create social impact?
Projects that can change lives inspire me, and I want to help strengthen, strategize and make more effective those same projects that might change lives, and inspire someone else.
Host Site Overview
TechSoup Global is working towards the day when every nonprofit and social benefit organization on the planet has the technology resources and knowledge it needs to operate at its full potential
Host Site Project
TechSoup is building capacity across the social sector so that every mission-based organization has the resources and connections it needs to improve lives. We are one of the world?s most successful nonprofit social enterprises serving the global nonprofit sector. The Fellow would join us at an exciting phase as we are expanding to become the number one resource platform for the global social sector, connecting all social stakeholders with funds, tools, peers, and supporters. Our primary program is the technology product donation program, which offers donated or discounted technology to eligible nonprofits from 100+ corporate donors including Microsoft, Adobe, Cisco, and others. We also provide content and training (e.g., webinars, advisory services, how-tos, and other materials) to encourage nonprofits’ adoption of technology and ensure that they use it to best meet their needs and fulfill their missions. The summer Fellow will serve with the Communications team to help establish an asset management system. This program is part of the second phase of the rollout of our new TechSoup brand. The asset management system will be used across the organization and potentially global network partners to give different stakeholders access to mostly visual assets, such as graphics, photos etc. It will also track the use of these materials. The Fellow will help build a scalable asset management system that will allow TechSoup to better and more strategically use images and other visual assets to raise awareness for our work, ultimately allowing us to better and more comprehensively serve our users worldwide. As our 30th year of service approaches in 2017, this is a critical component of our communications strategy.
