Recorded at the #NPTechClubATX November 2, 2020 presentation.

Kami Griffiths is the executive director and co-founder of Community Tech Network, a nonprofit with the mission to transform lives through digital literacy. With over 15 years of experience working in the public sector, Kami has developed a passion for helping people gain access and better utilize technology, after witnessing firsthand how the digital divide and low literacy levels were aiding the cycle of poverty.

Kami has worked for the City of New York Department of Parks & Recreation, managing 27 public access computing centers, teaching computer classes and establishing their volunteer trainer program. As the Training and Outreach Manager for TechSoup Global, Kami greatly expanded her knowledge and understanding of the nonprofit technology field, having conducted over 200 interviews with librarians and producing over 100 webinars. She is a founding member of the National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA) and speaks nationally about digital inclusion. 

“The City of Austin has been a national leader for digital inclusion for many years,” Griffiths said upon opening in Austin in 2017, “and we are excited to work with them, the community partners who participate in the digital empowerment of the City of Austin (DECA) and other Central Texas nonprofits who are looking to help their community cross the digital divide.”
