Heather Leson, Digital Innovation Lead, IFRC Solferino Academy 

Dirk has been instrumental in our shared innovation journey by bringing a special mix of skill, energy, and kindness. Fabriders supported the IFRC Solferino Academy efforts by designing network-centric resources, facilitating large-scale events, and connecting our global network to deliver humanitarian innovation. Together with our teams, we’ve reached over 25,000 people in IFRC events (Climate:Red, Data and Digital Week, Think Tanks, and Data Playbook activities) and engaged 1000s of participants and contributors during our work on the Data Playbook. A true sign of the impact of the work is seeing other Red Cross Red Crescent teams replicating the design and delivery of activities with similar participatory models.
