Event: Democratizing Development: How Technology is Disrupting Traditional Development Models

On April 15, 2008 the Society for International Development's Washington, DC Chapter and the Academy of Educational Development are co-sponsoring this event on technology and development.

Will technology put the traditional development model and development players "out of business"? Or, will technology enable both old and new players to contribute effectively to combating poverty?

During the session, panelists will demonstrate their technology and share their views. Panelists in attendance will include:

  • Raj Kumar, President, The Development Executive Group
  • Premal Shah, President, Kiva
  • Pierre Wielezynski, Communications Officer, Online Outreach, World Bank

The session will be moderated by: Matthew Clark, Director, Global Strategic Accounts, Microsoft
