Colleen Baker, Higher Digital’s co-founder and COO, was named to DCA Live’s 2021 New Power Women in Tech, an award that recognizes founders, investors, executives, connectors, and engineers who are making significant contributions to the local tech community. Baker is being recognized for her leadership and Higher Digital’s success in supporting higher education institutions in their quest to make better use of technology.

Baker leads the digital transformation initiatives for Higher Digital’s customers and has spent the last 20 years transforming IT and software development, optimizing teams, and aligning organizations across departments and functions.
