POSTPONED – Technology for Today’s Nonprofit Leaders

May 19, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm


BVU and the Akron Community Foundation partner to bring two nationally-recognized nonprofit thought leaders to share how your organization can embrace technology and equip yourself with the knowledge and resources you need to continue to grow and thrive.


Presentations include:

The Technology Leadership Imperative: Digital skillsets are essential to the success of nonprofits and the people who lead them. Drawing on Idealware’s research, we will explore why technology leadership—and its companions, digital readiness, and technical literacy—are critical for your organization’s success. We will also look at how technology is changing how we work, the advantages it provides, what kinds of digital skills nonprofit leaders need, and how they can acquire them.

Data Visualization: Data drives funding, programs, services, and community prosperity. We will explore the basics of using data analysis tools to produce useful information for your organization. We will lay the groundwork with tips on data tracking systems and capturing meaningful data points (garbage in – garbage out). We will provide examples of interactive reports and explain the technology behind the scenes.
