The Rob Stuart Memorial Award

The Rob Stuart Memorial Award honors the spirit of the man who was so pivotal in creating our community. Rob was a builder—of communities, of ideas, and of movements. Central to all of this work was the idea that technology can accelerate the pace of change, making it possible for movements to grow overnight and for change to be created in new and surprising ways.

Each year, we celebrate Rob by selecting a community that uses technology to disrupt the status quo.
