The Digital Innovation and Democracy Initiative is the technology program of The German Marshall Fund of the United States, harnessing GMF’s extensive networks across the US and Europe to ensure that the next waves of innovation will support – rather than undermine-- democratic values.

DIDI develops new agile, open, and accountable approaches to solving cutting edge challenges.

The Program Manager will be a visible spokesperson and representative of GMF and will conduct research and policy analysis.
