22NTC Session Proposal

Workshop: Creating Engaging Digital Experiences and Moving Operations Online

Submitted by: Isha Mishra 🔵 🟠 | Google for Nonprofits


Venture 2 Impact, joined by Google for Nonprofits, are hoping to take the stage at 21NTC for a 60-minute interactive & action-oriented session that encourages audience participation.

Venture 2 Impact, based in Halifax, Canada, works to break the cycle of poverty by connecting skilled professionals with the communities that need their support. Before the pandemic, they had tech experts travel around the world to lead workshops and trainings. But when travel was no longer safe, they reassessed their entire strategy  to move their operations online and use technology to inspire hope.

To provide support to the communities they serve, they created an action-oriented digital event featuring nonprofits and corporations. With 75 attendees from 5 countries, they learned about creating online panels & breakout sessions, adapting content for new challenges, and more. We are excited to share these learnings, along with best practices and tools to navigate the virtual environment.

  • Gather ideas for moving operations online and understand what tools can help
  • Learn how to keep serving your communities in a virtual world
  • Uncover best practices on keeping audiences engaged at digital events

Session Type
