Kathryn is NPC’s Digital Product Manager in the Innovation and Development team. Kathryn started life at NPC within the Research and Consultancy team, helping charities to understand, measure and communicate their impact. Her experience lies in theory of change, systems mapping, impact measure support, and grant management. This work led to opportunities for product management across the organisation. Kathryn helps develop NPC’s work on digital technology for social impact, spanning our innovation, think tank and consulting work. Kathryn is leading the development of NPC’s first digital products, developed within the Data and Learning team.
Alongside this, Kathryn is responsible for the development and delivery of NPC Labs, the Inspiring Impact website, and a progressive web app, as part of the My Best Life collaborative digital project. Kathryn conducts regular reviews via user testing sessions (in person and remotely) and makes improvements to functionality across both the Inspiring Impact and NPC Labs websites. My Best Life involves a collaborative design process with young people and youth practitioners from across the youth sector. The project is now moving into the development phase after an initial proof of concept.
Outside work, Kathryn has a keen interest in UX design and is passionate about ending violence against women. 2020 led Kathryn to take up a role as co-director of the IC Change campaign, working to ratify the Istanbul Convention.
