Digital Adoption in 2018
The internet is truly a required service for any organization to be successful in 2018. But what if your programs are meant to serve people who are among the 60 million Americans who don’t have internet access at home?
The Digital Adoption survey seeks to understand how organizations are making decisions and addressing the challenges of internet access and use by both staff and the communities they serve. The good news is digital adoption is increasing, but there are still gaps or needs among specific communities that digital inclusion programs have the opportunity to address.

Senior Program Manager
I'm passionate about embracing technology to achieve transformative social change. I believe that solutions to some of the world's biggest challenges can be found in grassroots communities from Chile to Kenya and that technology is the megaphone for their voice and agency.
Before NTEN, I was the Digital Action Campaigns Manager for World Pulse, where I developed international initiatives to deliver grassroots women leaders' testimonies and visions to decision-makers and influential forums. I've been back in the Pacific Northwest for almost a decade after seven years spent working in Latin America, where I managed international cooperation programs in areas ranging from poverty alleviation to social entrepreneurship. A native of Ukraine, I speak Russian, English, Spanish, and um pouquinho de português and have a B.A. in Spanish and Latin American Studies from Pitzer College and an M.A. in International Studies from the University of Chile.
Outside of office hours, you're most likely to find me hiking with my rescue pup Atlas, discovering new brews (of the caffeinated kind!), and packing my backpack for my next adventure.
