Mei Lin Fung
Mei Lin Fung is Chair and co-Founder (with Vint Cerf) of the People Centered Internet. Through People Centered Internet she works to ensure that people are at the center of the Internet as digital interdependence reshapes societies and economies. A key focus of her work as People Centered Internet Chair is to promote resilient communities financed with digital assets, using data so that communities can connect and members can thrive. She draws on her early training as a Financial Analyst at Intel, in Operations Research at Shell, and her extensive experience in developing Customer Relationship Management (CRM) approaches, to bring systematic evidence based analysis to the complex supply and demand for information. She also worked as socio-technical lead for Federal Health Futures at DoD where she realized that the financial sustainability of Community Health Centers in the US can be greatly enhanced by applying the lessons learned within tech corporations on managing operations to improve effective delivery of desired outcomes. Through People Centered Internet she has built alliances based on people-centered ecosystems with the IEEE, World Economic Forum, World Bank, UN and others at the country and regional level.
