SID is the Society for International Development. This week, Dr. Elvira will speak with SID's president, Katherine Raphaelson. They will talk about the mission and goals of SID and how civil society organizations can make in impact.

Katherine Raphaelson was previously the director of the Gorongosa Restoration Project, a conservation and human development effort in Mozambique, which she helped manage for nearly ten years. In addition, she spent six years in association management: she founded and managed a membership association in Boston, the Massachusetts Telecommunications Council, which she built to 300 organizational members. She was later asked to return to the association to rebuild it after it had lapsed. Ms. Raphaelson also worked with numerous start-up companies, including International Wireless/International Online, which acquired Africa Online and ultimately became Prodigy International. She served as that organization’s vice president of international marketing. She also worked for seven years at Boston Technology, a high tech start-up which she joined as the 4th employee and helped build to 500+ people. Ms. Raphaelson holds a B.A. in English from Wellesley College.
