Since graduating in early 2015 with a BS in sustainable urbanism Dawn has pursued a career in the world of civic technology. Her entry point was the rich community at Code for Philly, and it continues to show her more and more about the world and herself.
As Executive Director, Dawn works with passionate professionals, dedicated nonprofit and community groups, and progressive municipal partners to make Philly a better place for all our neighbors. A group of civic hackers, CfP volunteers use open data and technology as a mode of civic engagement and placemaking to improve their home.
Dawn is passionate about open data/open gov and urban governance approaches, inclusive community-building, beer and coffee snobbery, and will shamelessly geek out about all of those things if you let her.
