Siobhan got her first email account in 1994 in Senegal, where she realized this technology would be transformative for the world. First at various non-profits, then at a “Dot COM” in the 2000s, Siobhan parlayed her interest at the USAID ICT flagship project, the dot-com alliance. She then cofounded her own ICT4D small business, Sonjara, where for 15 years, she provided both software solutions and consulting in the international development space. Over the course of her career, and now at DT Global, Siobhan has been at the forefront of how to apply digital technology and data analytics for international development challenges. She has worked with USAID and other USG agencies, the UN agencies, FCDO, Gates Foundation, Global Fund, and the international NGO community to provide both strategic and implementation support on how to best use digital tools successfully, including ethically, sustainably, and impactfully.
What’s your favorite place of all the places you’ve travelled?
Toss-up between Greece and Malawi. Greece for the amazing history, and beaches (and food), and Malawi for the beautiful countryside and people.
If you were doing something else besides this, what would it be?
I love to bake—bread, sweets, pies, cakes… Not sure I am good enough nor have the stamina to be a pastry chef, but my wife and I dream about starting a pizza, wings, and beer restaurant to show off local artists and provide a safe space for the queer community.
