Leading Digital Transformation and the Future of Work with Investments in Civil Society

You voted for this

Over the past six months, the future of work has changed more rapidly than anyone had ever anticipated. As organizations (and society as a whole) shift as a result of the pandemic, leaders have a unique opportunity to design the future of work through digital transformation and leaning on the lessons learned during the crisis.

Yet, without shifts in impact investing, many mission-led organizations will not be able to find ways to better anticipate and understand what the world’s fast-changing civil society will need now and in the years to come, as well as how technology can help produce positive outcomes.

In a participatory workshop, Shruti Ramaswami, Director, Corporate Relationships, TechSoup, Erik Arnold, CIO Tech for Social Impact, Microsoft Philanthropies*,  and Sheila Warren, Head of Blockchain, Data, and Digital Assets at World Economic Forum will guide a discussion:

  • The key to making change in civil society is to remain human as we become a more technological-based world. How can we balance the uniquely human element as we digitally transform?
  • Investing in moving from digital transformation design for efficiency to digital transformation for resiliency
  • Ways to build pathways to ensure vulnerable and under-represented communities, including youth, women, people of color, and indigenous groups, have the opportunity to build technical skills and mitigate the digital divide (e.g. https://www.wired.com/story/opinion-three-steps-to-make-tech-companies-more-equitable/)
