Charlotte Macken

Programme Manager

Charlotte is an Programme Manager developing and delivering the Centre’s International Development and UK Prizes, including the Inclusive Technology Prize. She has worked with a range of partners, such as World Bank, USAID and Essex County Council, to provide consultancy services in capacity development and the design and delivery of challenges.

Charlotte first joined Nesta as the Project Coordinator to the Alliance for Useful Evidence. Prior to which, she worked for VSO, an international development charity that develops the capacity of local partners and communities through different types of volunteering offers. During her time at VSO, she worked on a variety of projects, many of which were linked to young people. Her varied roles at VSO included running youth programmes in Nigeria and India.

Charlotte holds a First in War Studies BA (Hons) from King’s College London and a Distinction in Muslims, Globalisation and the West (MLitt) from the University of Aberdeen.

In her free time, Charlotte can often be found volunteering on community projects or eating brunch. She very much enjoys both activities and, having recently moved ‘south of the river’, she’s looking forward to finding out what South London has to offer.
