Amplifying Our Impact: Interlacing Social Innovation and Digital Tech

Description

Join us to imagine the potential for deeper collaboration between social innovation and digital tech.

About this event

The rise of Calgary’s tech sector parallels the emergence of demands for more purpose-driven, socially responsible, and inclusive innovation. At the same time, community practitioners - policymakers, nonprofit leaders, activists, funders, and social entrepreneurs - are challenged to think in radically new ways about how we amplify social impact and affect change at a systems scale.

How might technology development enable social innovation to flourish? How might we plant the seeds for a more just, equitable, sustainable and thriving society?

Please join us as we discuss the possibilities alongside our panel featuring:

Also, learn about our vision for a new city-wide Centre for Social Impact Technology, and how it will nurture dialogue, learning, and action where social innovation and digital technology innovation meet.

This webinar is for all community practitioners in the nonprofit, public & private sectors including digital activists, tech entrepreneurs, academics, students and others interested in the potential - and perils - of using data and technology to tackle complex social challenges. No prior tech knowledge required!

Bring your questions, comments, and curiosity. We can’t wait to get started!
