Day by day schedule
- Chat is a senior manager and consultant specialized in gender, women's rights and information and communication technology for 15 years. She has been working with APC since 2000. She is an experienced manager, evaluator, resource person and speaker on gender and ICTs internationally.
- Katherine (Kat) has been with APC since August 2007. Before that time, she was an International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) intern working for APC on the Information Technology for Environmental Sustainability (ITES) initiative (since renamed Greening IT).
In many ways, the year 2000 was a turning point for APC. The communications revolution of the previous ten years had been both a great challenge and an opportunity. By the mid-1990s, our members were forced to make the transition from being pioneers in the use of online communication to facing intense competition. APC itself needed to broaden its focus from primarily facilitating technical interconnection, to embracing the emerging ICT for justice and development movement in a holistic way.
