ALLYSON KAPIN has been named one of the "Most Influential Women in Tech" by Fast Company, a "Tech Titan" by the Washingtonian, and "one of the top 30 women entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter" by Forbes for her leadership roles in technology and social media. Allyson is the Co-Founder of Rad Campaign, and has helped the largest and smallest nonprofits, foundations, and philanthropists build websites, apps, and national campaigns to power fundraising and grassroots movements.
Her campaigns have been recognized with several prestigious web awards and featured on several top media networks ranging from CNN to NPR to The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. She is passionate about the intersection of social change with online technologies and social communities, a topic she deeply explores in her nonprofit bestselling book Social Change Anytime Everywhere, co-authored by Amy Sample Ward of NTEN. The book is an action-oriented guide that shows nonprofits how to build and mobilize their communities through multifaceted campaigns, and by integrating online channels with offline tactics.
As the Founder of Women Who Tech, she launched one of the largest global programs, the Women Startup Challenge, in partnership with Craig Newmark of craigslist and Craig Newmark Philanthropies to disrupt up a culture and economy that has made it exceedingly difficult for women entrepreneurs to raise capital. She's on a mission to close the funding gap.
Allyson sits on the Board of Directors for the Women League of Voters. She's also been on the Advisory Board for the Anita Borg Institute and NTEN's Nonprofit Technology Conference Planning Committee. She's a jury member for the Webby Awards and speaks at conferences across the U.S. ranging from SXSW to Personal Democracy Forum, NTEN, and BBCON. Allyson is a contributor to Fast Company and Forbes focusing on trends in technology.
