About the Organizer

The #CIOChat was started by John Dodge at IDG/CIO.com. The #CIOChat provides a safe place for CIOs to share weekly their approaches and thinking about leading technical organizations, digital transformation, cloud, and the list goes on. Over the last several years, members have asked repeatedly for a live event. Given this, a steering committee was formed consisting of: Myles Suer, #CIOChat Facilitator, Joanna Young, Former CIO at Michigan State University; Stephen DiFilipo, Former CIO, University of Texas; Jay Ferro, Interim CIO, Quikrete and former CIO, American Cancer Society; Peter Salvitti, CTO at Boston College; and Ed Featherston, Distinguished Technologist at HPE. The committee determined there was a need for a CIO meeting that would be “by CIOs for CIOs”. Given this, we formed a non-profit. The mission of #CIOChat is to support the educational needs of IT Leaders and to provide STEM Diversity Scholarships and Mentoring.
