Michael Silberman, campaigns strategist, has been guiding social change organizations to achieve greater impact through the creative use of participatory strategies and technologies for more than a decade. He currently leads the Mobilisation Lab, a global learning and collaboration network powering the future of social change campaigns. Amidst growing threats — to people, the planet and the very right to advocate for change — MobLab equips progressive movements and leaders to adapt and thrive in the digital, people-powered era.

Silberman teaches digital-era advocacy and campaigning to graduate students as adjunct faculty with the George Washington University. He is recognized as one of the 50 most influential leaders in the U.S. by The NonProfit Times and one of LinkedIn’s "Top Professionals 35 and Under" transforming the social impact sector.

He got his start on Governor Howard Dean’s 2004 presidential campaign where he mobilized 200,000 grassroots volunteers through “Meetups” and built one of the first successful digital organizing programs in American politics. Prior to launching the MobLab, Silberman was a partner and co-founder at Echo & Co, an award-winning digital strategy firm.
