Khaled Hijab

Founder | Executive Director

Leading by example, and directing Tech Tribes with an innovative twist, Khaled uses his expertise in traditional/new media and ICT4D to connect youth and nonprofits across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region with innovative tools useful for advancing their missions.

Khaled is a member of UN Women's Civil Society Advisory Group, sharing his regional expertise in youth empowerment and gender equality. His role as an international social innovation and ICT4D speaker and trainer brought him closer to a number of social change groups in the MENA Region. He pursues his online activism as a blogger and an online-communities analyzer, working with online users on issues like digital security and Internet Freedoms. He works with marginalized groups (like victims of honor crimes and harassment) in Jordan and around the region on cause-based communication strategies and helps them utilize online technologies to advance their work.
