Anne Kjær Riechert  is CEO and co-founder ReDI School of Digital Integration. She is a 2006 graduate from KaosPilot in Denmark, a hybrid of a business and a design school. From 2006-2009, she worked as a corporate social responsibility consultant. In that capacity, she developed and implemented Samsung Electronics’ award-winning corporate social responsibility strategy for Scandinavia. In July 2010, Anne moved to Japan, where she spent 2 years researching open social innovation and received the prestigious Rotary Peace Fellowship. In 2012, she moved to Berlin to set up the Berlin Peace Innovation Lab, which is associated with Stanford University. The lab focuses on how technology is facilitating emerging and measurable social change toward global peace. In 2015, in response to the refugee crises, Anne co-founded ReDI School of Digital Integration, a vocational training program teaching programming and tech skills to asylum seekers. 

Anne has won several international and German awards. In 2018 she was recognised by  Edition F  as 25 women revolutionising German industry and named "Encourager of the Year" in Germany by Handelsblatt. In 2020 Anne was named "Female Social Entrepreneur of the Year" by the German Startup Award.

ReDI School of Digital Integration was founded in 2015 by a team convinced that technology can break down barriers and bring people together to build new solutions to old problems. The idea of ReDI was sparked by the insight that amongst the refugee population there are incredible talents eager to learn and eager to contribute, who could help fill the 124.000 open IT jobs in Germany.
From the beginning, ReDI has been developed through co-creation between the Berlin and Munich tech community (incl. SAP, Facebook, Cisco and Microsoft) and the ReDI students. The aim is to provide students with valuable digital skills and a strong ne twork of tech leaders, mentors and alumni to help create new opportunities for all. ReDI is a non-profit social enterprise offering several 3-months IT and coding courses, creative workshops, tech-talks, innovation projects as well as short term summer courses.
ReDI School has achieved tremendous impact thus far, with more than 2600 students completing at least one course. In the Spring 2020 semester, 650 students will participate at one of the four ReDI Schools. 60% of those are women!
The last survey conducted showed that 45% of the surveyed students were placed in paid internships or jobs. Furthermore, 37% joined a university and 5% founded a company or work as freelancers. The success stories have resonated with German and international media like CNN, BBC, die Zeit and Süddeutshe Zeitung. Several important visitors like German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and António Guterres. UN General Secretary have visited ReDI School and exchanged perspectives with the students.
