2022-2023 Impact Report

Published August 2023

We’ve had a big two years and want to celebrate. 🎉

Technologists for the Public Good (TPG) formed in 2021 to serve as a first-of-its-kind professional association for the growing field of public interest technology. 

While the field has been around for over 10 years, it’s a constantly changing and evolving ecosystem. With TPG, we set out to create a space where those of us who identify as public interest technologists—a term we view broadly—can come together to connect with others who are as passionate as we are about ensuring government can really work for the public.

As we continue to grow and operationalize as an organization, we aim to center everything we do around five values: community, collaboration, knowledge sharing, capacity building, and groundbreaking. We’re delighted to highlight some of the ways we’ve done this so far, and we look forward to accomplishing even more in years to come.


Much of this work was made possible thanks to funding by the New Venture Fund, volunteers who serve on the board of directors and committee, and our active and engaged community members. We are truly grateful for your support.

After securing this new funding and hiring staff for the first time, we received feedback from the community and trusted advisors recommending that our board stay as constant as possible. As a result, we renewed terms for two board members (Stephanie Cain and Cori Zarek) and extended board officer positions (Jenn Noinaj as board president, Stephanie Cain as vice president, and Cyd Harrell as secretary). Although we will not have open director positions for 2023, we intend to hold elections for new board members in 2024.


The investment from the New Venture Fund will help us test out, grow, and further professionalize the organization and provide support to our community in an even bigger way. Over the coming months, we’ll work to:


We’re grateful that so many members want to contribute to making TPG a success and ensuring there is a safe, welcoming, and engaging environment for folks working in and around public interest technology. We encourage you to keep engaging in events and in our online communities, as well as consider supporting the organization in a few specific ways:
