Senior Program Manager

Victoria Welborn is a Senior Program Manager at NDI (the National Democratic Institute) where she works on global topics and policies that land at the intersection of civic technology, transparency, and trust building. Victoria spends most days trying working with civic activists and government officials to create more transparent and trustworthy governments, working to scale tech tools and use good governance to counter authoritarian influence, and most recently how the open government and civic tech communities can use technology to adapt to a COVID-19 reality. Prior to joining NDI, she worked on digital communications in the US Congress and for a political advertising firm. Victoria received a BA in psychology at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas where she wrote her capstone paper on analysis of cyber-bullying legislation.
