Karen E. Baker

Senior Manager, Community Strategy & Design

Karen brings an attention to user experience as she creates structured opportunities for partners to share learnings that move us closer towards our shared. She joined 100Kin10 from The Feast, a social enterprise that inspires creatives to apply their skills to solve societal problems, where she spearheaded a community-led event series spanning more than 40 cities across 6 continents.

Before that, Karen led community efforts at Codecademy, an ed-tech startup offering free, interactive coding lessons, devising and implementing a sustainable community infrastructure as it scaled from 3 million to 5 million users.

Can you tell us about one important lesson you took from working in a startup environment that’s been important in helping you fulfill 100Kin10’s mission?
Measure success by how well you have solved a problem for your users - and don’t stop there. A project may end after a deadline, but the product or offering you’ve created lives on; how might you continue to improve, refine, and learn?
