Megan Smith is an award-winning tech entrepreneur, engineer, and evangelist. As the third U.S. chief technology officer, she helped the President harness the power of technology, data, and innovation to advance the future of our nation and the world.

As CEO of PlanetOut, Smith was a leader of the online LGBT community in the early days of the Internet. She also worked as an engineer at General Magic on teams designing early smartphone technologies and at Apple Japan in Tokyo. Today, she serves on the boards of MIT, the MIT Media Lab, and Vital Voices.

Smith is an advisor to the MIT Media Lab, Vital Voices, and the Malala Fund, which she co-founded. Over the years, she has contributed to a wide range of engineering projects, including an award-winning bicycle lock, space station construction program, and solar cook stoves. Smith holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees in mechanical engineering from MIT, where she now serves as a life member of the board.
