Alessandra Orofino

Alessandra Orofino is the Executive Director and Co-founder of Our Cities, an online platform which is developing tools for civic engagement and participation in cities. Our Cities was born out of Alessandra's experience with Meu Rio, a digitally-powered local community of action that aims to make information of political processes accessible to a broader public. Orofino herself describes the work of Meu Rio as "translating public policy issues into a language that is understandable to broader society and young people". Prior to that, Alessandra Orofino worked at Purpose.com, a partner organization of Meu Rio, where she took part in setting up Purpose Brazil. Before that, she worked at a corporate social responsibility consultancy that provides strategic advice to major Brazilian corporations, and in women's rights advocacy and research in Brazil and India. She holds a degree in Economics and Human Rights from Columbia University and subsequently became a faculty member at the School of Visual Arts, contributing to their pioneering program in Design for Social Innovation.

The conference proved to be one of the most engaging and exciting professional gatherings of like-minded people I've ever attended. Although the topics, content, and presentations all appropriately centered around volunteering and service in some way, the sheer range of them was simply astounding.
