Eve Bills Lacivita
Working at the intersection of social impact, human-centered design, and tech to develop field-tested strategies & offerings that create improved outcomes for those you serve.
I've always been purpose driven, and care deeply about issues of equity and access. After an initial education in international development, I ended up in tech, and proceeded to bend every product role I held for the next 20 years in any way I could toward customers most in need of help. I've been actively working in the non-profit space for the last 12 years. My current work blends the worlds of product development and nonprofit impact to make a real difference for those in need.
Human-centered & evidence-driven
Great apps and services start with deep, data-backed user empathy.
I bring human-centered design to the social sector so you can create impact for your stakeholders.
Tech and non-profit experience
I spent 20 years strategizing, developing and launching successful consumer and b2b tech products in companies ranging from Fortune 100 to small startups.
I have worked for over 10 years with nonprofits to develop new apps, services and strategies. I focus primarily on economic and educational equity. Recent topics include STEM underrepresentation, homelessness & eviction, and affordable internet access.
Hands-on & execution focused
This is not "over the wall" consulting work. I embed with you to deeply understand the needs of those you serve. We'll start with hands-on research with constituents. We'll develop a bold vision backed by evidence, then rapidly test into solution ideas. At the end, you'll have a high-confidence, validated prototype, a tested strategy, and an executable roadmap. As needed, I'll continue with you to operationalize your new product or service until they are demonstrably successful.
Passionate about human services non-profits
I specialize in small non-profits at pivot points, such as those facing decisions of how to reach new beneficiaries with technology, expand into new service areas, or even re-imagine the mission altogether.
Together, we'll build high-confidence, executable solutions to realize your vision of change.

- Subina Desai, Marketing Lead
I was truly inspired by Eve's work leading a project at U.S. Digital Response, and how she was able to balance the realities of rapid-response work with a deeply client-centered approach. Our partners could not have been happier with the results. If you’re looking for an adept human technologist, product thinker, and collaborator for your next impact journey, look no further.

As a strategic thinker and partner, Eve led by laying the foundation and creating the clarity needed for our team to deliver on the most important customer problems.
