How can non-profits advance equity, self-determination, and reciprocity through our use of technology? Data and digital technologies can be essential tools to help non-profits and charities meet our missions and multiply our impact. Yet, non-profits have not always been well-served by technology, nor have we seen our core values embedded in how technology is developed, used, and regulated. Amy Sample Ward, CEO of NTEN, and Katie Gibson, Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships, CIO Strategy Council, will offer tangible advice on how we can better incorporate our missions and values in our engagement with technology.
