In 2021 worked on expanding Arrival Advisor to Manitoba and published Settlement 2.0, providing a snapshot of Canada's settlement sector's relationship with the digital world.
2020 was a dynamic and successful year for our organization. Our founder Renee Black decided to step down early this year and we welcomed our new CEO, Jennifer Freeman in the spring of 2020. Jen has created a new 3-year strategic plan, which builds on our organization’s foundation and guides us on a new trajectory.
2019 was PeaceGeeks’ most successful and defining year yet. As we approach 10 years in the peace and technology sector, we are taking the opportunity to reflect on our growth and accomplishments to date and look ahead to the future of the organization.
2018 has been an incredible year for PeaceGeeks. We built our Arrival Advisor app, continued the Meshkat Community program, and more.
2017 has been a breakthrough year for PeaceGeeks, from winning the Google.org Impact Challenge Canada, launching Meshkat Community and a new office in Amman.
2016 has been an important year of progress and maturity for PeaceGeeks. We refined our strategic focus on core areas where we are recognized experts.
2015 was an exciting year of maturity and growth for us. We worked on 14 projects primarily in East Africa and the Middle East and hosted 6 PeaceTalks.
Our third year has been one of exciting expansion. We've completed projects with 22 partners and are proud to have new, cutting edge technology partners coming on board.
In 2013, we consolidated our position as a fast-growing organization in the digital peace space with talks, hackathons, events, the development of Amani and many completed projects.
