Momentum for Change: Strategies for Achieving Digital Equity

At NTEN, we strive for a world in which every nonprofit uses technology to effectively and efficiently meet their mission and making last change. Today, nonprofits – regardless of where they are located, how many staff they have, or the size of their budget – want to do more with technology to activate supporters, raise money, engage their community around issues, and deliver programs and services.

With 60 Million Americans unable to participate from home in the kind of Internet experience many of us take for granted, it’s critical that as nonprofit staff we question our assumptions and address myths around connectivity in our communities.

This morning, we will hear from three passionate and experienced leaders. Between the three presenters, we will explore both the myths that hold us back from effective engagement as well as real-world examples of successful models for addressing systemic barriers to digital equity, and the realities of urban, suburban, and rural communities.

In the spirit of this morning’s plenary focus, NTEN’s CEO, Amy Sample Ward, will also announce the recipient of the annual Rob Stuart Memorial Award, celebrating an organization or community organizing a movement for impact. See 3 Communications and YouTube will present the finalists and winners of the 2016 DoGooder Video Awards.

Speakers:

Connie Stewart, Executive Director at the California Center for Rural Policy (CCRP) at Humboldt State University

Diana Rodriguez, Director of Digital Learning and Technology, Youth Policy Institute

Martin Wolske, Senior Research Scientist, Center for Digital Inclusion, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
