PCI Board - Leadership Team

The PCI Leadership Team helps guide PCI's international coalition of positive #ChangeAgents working together to ensure that the Internet continues to improve people’s lives and livelihoods. We seek out positive #ChangeAgents to develop and lead community projects that show ways the Internet can continue to be a global force for good. PCI operates as a 501(c)3 non-profit incubator of initial seed projects that can improve the world, working with PCI coalition partners to refine projects to the point where they are ready for funding by external efforts to show measurable impacts that can help people around the world.

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, PCI is grateful for the pro bono services of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. The PCI Board includes:
