For people working at nonprofits, who can't get enough technology education at our Netsquared group meetings, here is a list of events on topics nonprofit and technology. As a local Netsquared organizer, I also serve as a resource outside our meetings. Beyond Techsoup and NTEN there are quite a few more sources available for additional learning and discussion. Take a look at the October topics, I am sure there will be most valuable information provided. All times are Eastern Daylight Saving Time (EDT).
Looking for ideas and tips to improve your nonprofit's online presence? Check out the Nonprofit Online Makeover hosted by NCTech4Good September 16, 6:30 pm at UNC-TV, Research Triangle Park, NC, for a fun evening of digital ideas.
This is to let you know that In September we have lined up three events (so far!) for people interested in using the web or mobile technology for social good. All events take place at the new Impact Hub in Digbeth, Birmingham. We'll even arrange some refreshments too!
NetSquared gathers together nonprofits and activists, tech leaders and funders, and everyone who’s interested in using technology for social change. Every month our meetup leaders host free in-person events every month in 60 cities. Find your closest group or apply to start a new group.
Nonprofit staffers will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those who aren’t experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.
Technologists and consultants will find opportunities to put your expertise to social good, as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in your community.
Activists and community leaders will see and be given the opportunity to present on successful uses of technology for social change. Not content to simply focus on “shiny tech,” we’ll explore what the true potential for social change is in each case, where community organizing work can be made more effective, and where it will have to push technology forward
