#14LCS Facilitator Series: Meet Bridget Marie Todd

banner_final.preview.jpg

If you register for NTEN’s first-ever Leading Change Summit this September (#14LCS), you’ll be asked to choose one of three tracks—Digital Strategy, The Future of Technology, or Impact Leadership—and you’ll spend quite a bit of time with your track-mates at the Summit.

That’s why we’re doing our best to recruit a remarkable group of facilitators to help shape your experience. Each track will have two Lead Facilitators and several additional Facilitators who will design spaces and lead small group conversations to make sure that every participant has the chance to both learn and share.

Based in Washington, D.C., Bridget is the former Digital Training Manager at the New Organizing Institute (NOI). Before joining the team at NOI, she taught full-time at Howard University where she developed a curriculum that integrates new media and digital platforms into writing instruction.

Previously, Bridget worked as a new media director on a CREDO SuperPAC campaign; as an organizer for the Sunlight Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to increasing transparency in government; and as the social media producer for the Good Fight, formerly the Flaming Sword of Justice, a daily podcast centered around progressive politics and affiliated with MoveOn.org. Bridget has a passion for engaging communities of color, and her writing on race, politics, and culture has appeared in the Atlantic, the Huffington Post, Jezebel, BuzzFeed, the Aerogram, DCentric, Racialicious, and several other outlets. Folks who attended our 2014 Nonprofit Technology Conference might recognize Bridget because she moderated a Big Ideas panel on the power of tech in advocacy and organizing.

You can follow her on Twitter at @BridgetMarie.

If you register for the #14LCS and opt for the Digital Strategy track, you’ll join Bridget and her co-facilitators to reflect deeply about how nonprofits can drive Web innovation and how to make the Web work for us.
