Thursday, May 16 from 5:00 - 6:00 PMThe Class of 1930 Room, Rockefeller Center 

"What happens when a growing tech company runs into the reality of small communities? Matt Dunne, Head of Community Affairs for Google and former Associate Director of Rocky, will discuss the challenges, strategies and successes in developing a community affairs program from scratch, translating tech into the messy world of local relationships, and scaling to international communities."
Matt Dunne has focused his life’s work on bringing together the worlds of entrepreneurship, service and politics.  Elected to the Vermont House at the age of 22, he served 7 years before joining the Clinton Administration as the Director of AmeriCorps*VISTA overseeing 6000 full-time people working in the fight against poverty.  

In 2002 he returned home to Vermont and was elected to two terms in the Vermont Senate. Outside of the legislature, he worked in high-tech marketing and before joining Google was the Associate Director of the Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth College, creating programs to support students who wish to pursue careers in the nonprofit and public sector.

Now the Head of Community Affairs at Google, Matt supports the company’s local corporate social responsibility activities in 30 communities where Google has an office or data center as well as helping guide larger corporate partnerships with the nonprofit and public sector. Matt lives on the small farm where he grew up in Hartland, VT with his wife Sarah Taylor and his sons Judson and Abraham and daughter Cora.
