Dorothy Jones-Davis is the Executive Director of Nation of Makers, a national nonprofit whose mission is to support the full range of organizations that impact makers, by encouraging connections, broadly sharing resources, facilitating funding opportunities, engaging in policy development, and advocating for the maker movement.
Prior to her current position, Dorothy was a co-founder and co-producer of the National Maker Faire and the DC Mini Maker Faire, and served as an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow in the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Directorate for Engineering. In this role, she investigated how the maker movement can be leveraged to improve access to engineering pathways for traditionally underrepresented populations.
Dorothy is deeply interested in finding ways to create connections between a diversity of makers, leveraging their collective skills to harness solutions for the world’s challenges – grand and small. In her spare time, she enjoys building and making with her eight-year-old daughter.
