#14LCS Facilitator Series: Meet Deepa Kunapuli


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.

Deepa Kunapuli is a digital strategist, writer, and entrepreneur. She is a co-founder of The Brain Trust, a digital consulting firm that provides capacity building services to Asian American and Pacific Islander organizations in the social justice and advocacy space.

Previously, she ran online programs for the New Organizing Institute, trained thousands of progressive organizers in digital best practices, and ran online constituency outreach for the 2012 Obama campaign. She’s a proud graduate of the University of Iowa and spends her free time at dance class.

If you register for #14LCS and opt for this track, you’ll join Deepa, Bridget Marie Todd, and their crackerjack team of facilitators to reflect deeply about how nonprofits can drive Web innovation and how to make the Web work for us.

You can follow Deepa on Twitter at @Deepa_K.
