Rosalyn Lemieux
Sr Director, Software Engineering
Blackbaud, Inc.

Currently, I am the Sr. Director of Blackbaud Labs. Previously, I was the CEO and co-founder of (a Blackbaud company) and founding partner at Fission Strategy (now Do Big Things), a creative agency that has helped over 200 organizations "ignite social action for good" using the social, web, and mobile technology. (Check out my co-founder Cheryl Contee's book: *Mechanical Bull* for some of our lessons learned.) I have served as Executive Director of the New Organizing Institute (NOI), a training institute for tech-enabled grassroots organizers. I gained experience in large-scale grassroots organizing as an early member of the team after getting my start in online advocacy in 1999, serving as the Feminist Majority Foundation's web team director. I have received awards including a 2014 Stevie Award for Women in Business, a 2012 Campaigns & Elections Innovator award, the 2009 Women's Information Network "Young Women of Achievement" award and recognition from Planned Parenthood for the Feminist Majority's trailblazing online campaign in support of women and girls in Afghanistan (2003). I have served on the boards of Turing School, National Priorities Project, the Chattahoochee Hills Charter School Foundation, CHCS governing board, Do Big Things corporate board; and as an advisor to LP2X, an Atlanta-based incubator for female-founded businesses. I am a member of the Blackbaud Senior Women's Leadership Council.
