Behold my name badge from the 2015 Nonprofit Technology Conference (also known as #15ntc).
I’m much obliged to my beloved friend Peter Campbell for the #NTCBEER button, which I wore proudly throughout the conference. You know it’s not just a good party but a great yearly tradition when a nondrinker looks forward to it.
However, at the moment, I want to call attention to the “Diva” and “Instigator” ribbons attached to my badge. This was a brilliant swag offering from the folks at the Strategic Fulfillment table in the conference’s exhibit hall. Usually at conferences, ribbons are given out by the event organizers to sponsors, exhibitors, speakers, and various other V.I.P.s. The Strategic Fulfillment Group was smart enough to make it a matter egalitarian self-determination. Any visitor was welcome to take and wear the ribbon of his or her choice.
I like “Diva” and “Instigator,” but the ribbon I really want is one that says “TECHNOBABE.”

I’ll take a ribbon with the nickname a co-worker once gave me: Geekette. It was a job at a for-profit company, but I’ve used my geeky skills at non-profits, too.
