Though we were sad to lose Meghan Lang as KidsTek’s Program Manager, she’s now doing amazing work as PCs for People’s Manager of Business Development. Now that she’s had some time to adjust to her new role, we wanted to catch up with her and learn more about what she’s working on now.
Meghan works in a few different areas: securing grants and funding, working with companies to source e-waste, and doing all sorts of things under the umbrella of “community engagement.” “Community engagement is a catch-all for working on setting up distribution events with nonprofit partners, building out our education branch, giving tours at our Northeast Park Hill Tech Hub, and helping to promote our Business of the Month and volunteer programs,” says Meghan.
Her favorite part of adjusting to her new role has been learning more about the amazing services PCs for People provides as an ITAD (IT asset disposition) service provider. “It is more enjoyable to sell a service when I really believe in it and think it is an important and responsible thing to do,” says Meghan. “This work is important and special because the services we provide have dual-sided benefits: not only do we work with companies to help them responsibly recycle and refurbish their old equipment, we also use that equipment to support low-income families and individuals.”
After spending her day at work talking tech, Meghan likes to use tech at home to pursue personal interests and keep up with friends. “I always love perusing Instagram, looking at photos and watching fun videos.” Meghan says. “I also get a lot of fun recipes and creative ideas from Instagram!”
Meghan added that she hopes that any KidsTek supporters who are interested in learning more about PCs for People’s services and missions reach out to her–she’s always willing to chat about what we do!
Congrats to Meghan on her new position and we’re excited to see what she does next!
