Technology is shaped by many hands along the way: those who are part of technology development process, those who fund projects and companies, and those who decide how to put technology to use; and that technology then shapes a range of outcomes for society. To ensure those outcomes truly benefit the public, we must—all of us—shift our relationship to technology —how we build it, fund it, and use it.

Join us for a fireside chat featuring Afua BruceSue Hendrickson and Amritha Jayanti, who will discuss the future role and applications of the technology pushing the social impact sector forward.

Their conversation will explore the implications of the use, creation, and funding of technology and how social impact organizations, technologists, funders, policymakers, and—most importantly—communities can accelerate change for the better.

The Technology and Public Purpose (TAPP) Project is pleased to present this event in collaboration with the Berkman Klein Center to highlight Bruce's new book (with Amy Sample Ward) The Tech That Comes Next.
