E4C Visualized: Our First Decade in Photos

Engineering for Change celebrates our 10th anniversary this year. To commemorate the ocassion, we’ve flipped through the photo album to find images of the events and milestones we’ve crossed to get here.

E4C Turns 10: A Decade of Growth Leads to a Decade of Action

Iana Aranda, E4C’s President, displays our beta site on a laptop at A Better World By Design, hosted by Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design in 2010.

E4C invited startups, non-profit engineering and design organizations, academics and others to our E4C Connect networking event in Denver in 2011.

We held a forum at IEEE’s Global Humanitarian Technology Conference in Seattle, Washington, in 2011.

E4C Connect in San Francisco, California, convened startups and engineering non-profits in 2011.

Steve Katsaros (center) holds up a solar-powered lightbulb that he produces through his startup, Nokero. Mr. Katsaros is a part of a panel at E4C Connect:Washington DC, a networking event we hosted in 2012.

William Kamkwamba, the man pictured in the photo under our logo, famously built an electricity-generating wind turbine from parts he found in his village in Malawi. In E4C’s early days, Mr. Kamkwamba and his story had a place on our website, in our news and in our promotional materials as an inspiration to which we could aspire.
