2018: Advocacy and Action

Kathryn Brown
By Kathryn BrownPresident / CEO
Happy New Year!

2018 offers exciting promise and opportunity for the Internet Society and the work of our global community for a better Internet. We’ll continue the positive momentum we started in 2017, when we celebrated our 25 year milestone and strengthened our impact around the globe.

Thank you to all who joined us on this amazing journey.  Take a look back at many of last year’s highlights.

Our ongoing mission to protect and to shape the Internet for future generations is not an easy task. However, we are well positioned with the people, resources, and commitment from across our global community to be a bold, powerful force for change.

To carry forward our focus on access and trust as the two most pressing issues facing the Internet today, in 2018 we will execute our Action Plan that outlines our advocacy efforts in these areas with a detailed set of priorities for maximum impact. In addition, we will continue to extend our community and organization to build a stronger foundation for realizing our vision, and foster new initiatives that respond to today’s rapidly changing world.

While I have announced my plans to pass on the CEO baton once the Board completes its search for a new leader, I am committed to ensure that nothing detracts from driving forward the mission of this organization and our important work in 2018.

The Internet is a force for good and it requires all of us to keep it that way. 2018 will bring exciting new opportunities for the Internet Society to shine and to take on a more influential role in shaping the future of the Internet for the next generation. Let’s continue our great work to keep the Internet open and to #ShapeTomorrow.
