Many people in executive leadership positions at nonprofits today moved up through the ranks ahead of the wave of all things digital. These leaders must now agree to budgets, campaigns, and hiring spends for things that they may not have much experience with. For those who want to progress the digital future of their organizations, it’s vital to have the support of leadership in developing a culture of technology advocacy and good decision-making.

This course will help you articulate and advocate for the change you know is needed and get your organization’s leadership on board.

A week-long course that takes place in our Online Training Center.

Participants complete pre-readings, answer knowledge check questions, attend an online training, and receive feedback directly from faculty on a homework assignment.

Learning Objectives:

Participants will be able to…

  • Clearly articulate to leadership the value of investing in digital for your organization
  • Demonstrate using facts and the current state of the digital landscape
  • Have tools, tactics and processes to encourage organizational change needed
