It is with great sadness that the IGF Secretariat heard about the passing of Marilyn Cade. She was a staunch supporter and advocate of the IGF and Internet governance in general. Her energy, enthusiasm and dedication, in particular to the meaningful inclusion of communities from developing countries resulted in dozens of countries establishing their National, Regional and Youth initiatives (NRIs). Marilyn was also instrumental in organizing the business constituency and also the technical community in and for the IGF. She also contributed to the formation of IGFSA and capacity building in general. Her passion, drive and energy will be sorely missed but forever remembered.
We invite members of the community to submit a few words of remembrance on this page through the form below.
We will also be hosting a session in her memory during IGF 2020, on 6 November, at 21:00 UTC. Please use the details below to join the session.
