Lisa Witter is co-founder and executive chair of Apolitical, a global learning network used by public servants in 170+ countries. The tech company’s mission is to accelerate the transformation of government. Apolitical was named one of Fast Company’s most innovative companies in 2018 and Disrupt 100 said of them: “This new approach to solving common problems could potentially impact everyone on the planet.” She’s a World Economic Forum (not so) Young Global Leader, co-chairs the Forum’s Council on Agile Governance, and served for six years on the Brain and Behavior Council. She’s a serial entrepreneur, author, and former public servant. As a policy geek and lover of politics (yes, you read that right), she’s founded several political training institutes. She’s a regular advisor to start-ups, philanthropists, politicians and has held board or advisory seats for numerous purpose-driven companies such as Care.com and Stonyfield Farms. An American in Berlin, she’s worked in a pit crew, considers herself a Title IX baby, ran for ‘President’ on a reality TV show on Showtime, and is a self-proclaimed nature freak. Before COVID she was known to show up in the office sporting clothes ready for a disco and now she basically just wears baggy sweats and throws on a black blazer and red lipstick for Zoom calls.
