Tech for Global Good: Maximizing Office Technology

Event Description

Optimizing your website, database, data visualization, and internal technology systems can be challenging for global non-profits, especially during budgeting and planning cycles. Come to this panel event to ask your questions! Our panel consists of two technology service providers that work exclusively with non-profits and two non-profit organizations who have undergone or are going through technology projects. The goal of this panel event is to help provide direction and options for planning and implementing your next technology project as well as helping the tech community determine what programs and services should be offered to better serve the global non-profit community.
