The Tech That Comes Next: The future of tech for nonprofits
Technology is inseparable from inequity in our organizations and our communities, from digital divides to web accessibility, AI discrimination to dataset biases, VC and philanthropic funding imbalances to inadequate training. After multiple years in a global pandemic that has required so many of us to connect to friends, family, school, work, and support services through an online device, there’s no question that technology is also inseparable from the world around us.
What does it look like to change all of that? Amy and Afua's co-authored book, The Tech That Comes Next: How changemakers, technologists, and philanthropists can build an equitable world, takes an intersectional approach in analyzing how technology is funded, built, and put to use today and presents alternative strategies for what it could look like tomorrow. From staff in social impact organizations to policymakers, funders to community leaders, and technologists in all kinds of settings, there are critical shifts in what and who is valued that are necessary for changing the technology we have and the world we create. Join us to talk about what we can build together.
