Megan Abell is the Senior Director of Advocacy for TechEquity Collaborative. Megan brings extensive experience in building novel organizing programs from the ground up. She comes to us from Common Sense Kids Action, where she developed and launched a mobilization program to engage parents in advocacy around tech issues that affect their children like cybersecurity, screen time, and tech addiction.
Prior to her work with Common Sense, Megan was an early employee of Airbnb’s Public Policy team where she co-founded their first organizing and mobilization program. A unique initiative to deploy traditional grassroots organizing tactics within a tech company, her initial organizing model in San Francisco has now been replicated by Airbnb in markets globally. That work builds on her more than 6 years of experience as an organizer and campaign operative for unions, issue advocacy campaigns, non-profits, and candidates.
