The Ireland Funds @ Digital DNA 2018

On 19 June 2018 The Ireland Funds hosted a special session on Digital Diaspora at DigitalDNA, Northern Ireland’s leading business and technology event.

The session explored how technology can better connect the diaspora, and in turn, how that diaspora contributes to Northern Ireland both from a philanthropic and commercial perspective.

The panellists were: Ryan Feeney, Head of Public Engagement, Queen’s University Belfast & Belfast Young Leaders steering committee member; John Greer, Director of Economic Development, Belfast City Council; Dermot McLaughlin, Principal Consultant at Creative Strategic Solutions; Anton McGonnell, MBA Candidate Harvard University and Siobhán Gallagher, Director, The Ireland Funds.

After the session, Belfast Young Leaders, networked at an after-event kindly hosted by DigitalDNA and planned their trip to the Global Young Leaders Summit in New York in 2019 to meet their fellow diaspora!
