CEO & Chief Old Person
As CEO and Chief Old Person of DoSomething.org, the largest tech company exclusively for young people and social change, Aria Finger uses her expertise on all things young people and technology to lead a diverse, impact-driven team. She has been an instrumental part of scaling DoSomething.org from less than 100,000 members to over 5 million members in 131 countries today. Starting at DoSomething.org as an associate 14 years ago, Aria created their Teens for Jeans campaign which clothed half of all homeless youth in the US in a single year.
With her cause-related marketing experience, Finger has spearheaded partnerships with top brands including Johnson & Johnson, H&M, and CVS Health.
In 2013, she founded and became President of DoSomething Strategic, a strategic consultancy that uses DoSomething.org’s 25+ years of experience and proprietary data to help clients reach young people and fuel positive impact in the world. DoSomething Strategic has brought in over $10million in revenue to date.
Aria graduated magna cum laude in economics and political science from Washington University in St. Louis, and completed the Executive Program for Nonprofit Leaders at the Stanford University Graduate School of Business. Aria currently serves on the board of the NYC-based not-for-profit Care for the Homeless, was one of the first ten World Economic Forum Global Shapers, and is an adjunct professor at New York University. She has been highlighted in the New York Times, Fast Company, and was named to the 2012 Crain’s New York Business list of “40 Under Forty” and featured on the cover. In 2016, she was selected as a Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum.
When she is not running DoSomething.org or desperately trying to improve her Spanish, Aria can be found reading The New Jim Crow for the thousandth time or relearning her ABCs with the newest additions to the DoSomething family, her adorable sons Luke & Sawyer.
