Ann Mei Chang, an eight-year senior engineering veteran of Google, spoke on information communications technology for development (ICT4D): policy, practice, and practicalities, during an ATLAS Speaker Series presentation on March 31. As chief innovation officer at Mercy Corps, she builds highly scalable social enterprises and leverages mobile/internet to improve the lives of the poor. Previously, at the U.S. Department of State, she served as the senior advisor for Women and Technology in the Secretary's Office of Global Women's Issues.
There, she helped bridge the gender gap in access to mobile phones and the Internet, leveraging technology in improving the lives of female populations in developing countries and increasing the representation of women in the technology sector.
