Sonja Betschart is the Co-Founder and Co-CEO of WeRobotics, a US/Swiss based non-profit organization. She believes that the most important questions for the technology sector are not which technologies to use, but to address the ""Who"" and ""How"". Who gets to use technologies, implement solutions and access leadership opportunities in the ""Technology for Good"" space? And how can technologies create sustainable value in an inclusive way?
Together with her colleagues at WeRobotics she pursues the mission of shifting power back to local experts with local knowledge and lived experience, to create the leadership opportunities they seek to implement solutions in the pursuit of positive social impact and the radical inclusion needed to accelerating our collective pursuit of SDGs. And to drive systems change by co-creating models and methods for the ""Technology for Good"" space all the while inspiring others to replicate these models.
Sonja is a passionate change agent, facilitator and social entrepreneur with a longstanding career both in the non-profit and for-profit sectors, including start-ups, SMEs and multinationals. Her strategic advice, operational insights and Design Thinking methods have supported many new ventures to turn their ideas into viable and impactful organizations.
Sonja holds Master degrees in Marketing and SME Management, is trained in Design Thinking, Project Management and Principled Negotiation. As a fun fact: earlier studies include Sound Engineering and chocolate/candy maker, to always keep life sweet and soulful. She is a seasoned speaker, including recent speaking engagements at WSIS, WEF and UNWDF, and has been voted one of Switzerland's 100 Digital Shapers in 2018 and 2019.
