Annie Plotkin

Community Engagement Manager

Annie joined Ashoka U.S. right after graduating from the University of Virginia in 2016, where she majored in Political and Social Thought. She was a Global Citizen Year Fellow from 2011-2012, when she traveled to Northeastern Brazil and worked in a government crisis center and her host family's snack stand. Since then, she has worked on issues of racial and environmental justice, women's rights, and educational equity for minority students in Washington D.C.

As our Community Engagement Manager, Annie works on bringing together members of the Ashoka network to catalyze meaningful, nurturing, and fun relationships through events, communications, and facilitating connections. She is a co-creator of Ashoka Huddles, DMV native, and chief morale officer at our global offices in Arlington.
