Vice President, Technology and Data
Christen Ng joined AVID in 2021 as the Vice President of Technology and Data. She is responsible for leading the Technology Service team in bringing the organization’s technology infrastructure, applications, and data/impact strategy to life.

She has become highly skilled in organizational performance management, program assessment and evaluation, and outcomes measurement. This expertise has translated to millions of dollars in grants, local and national recognition/awards, changes in Chicago's education policy, program models that have been scaled and replicated, and master class workshops and presentations in sharing proven solutions.
