NetSquared Midlands is a tech for social good group with regular free events, organised by Pauline Roche (https://twitter.com/paulineroche) and occasional co-organisers for people interested in using web or mobile technology for social good. NetSquared Midlands is part of a global NetSquared (http://netsquared.org/) movement of innovators in more than 70 cities around the world.
Whether you are a charity, community group or nonprofit organisation in the traditional sense, a venture capitalist, a programmer, an individual with a great idea, or a social changemaker, NetSquared Midlands is here to help you make connections and create a community around innovating for good in the Midlands.
These events are great opportunities to learn what others are trying, see successful projects and platforms, hear about developing technologies, make new friends and collaborate on new projects.
Our programme is a varied mix of open mic unconference sessions, speakers on topics relevant to the sector, show and tell sessions and one to one surgeries.
This is an additional/alternative date for the session from CAST & IVAR event on Wednesday 3rd February on the same topic. Please only sign up to one, not both, events.
2020 saw many small voluntary organisations grappling with tech and taking their services online for the first time.
In the space of a few short months, new tools were trialled, new service delivery approaches were tested, new skills were learned and new knowledge was built.
About the session
This event is run by the NetSquared London and NetSquared Midlands tech for good communities. We host events for nonprofits and techies to come together to share ideas, learn new skills, ask questions, and collaborate around using technology for social benefit.
We are part of the international NetSquared community.
This is a space to take stock, share and learn from others who've been on a similar digital journey. It'll be an open, safe, lightly-facilitated space to reflect and listen.
Who it's for
This meetup is aimed specifically at small charities. Because we know some of the tech and digital challenges facing small charities are unique to this group.
Research shows that peer support and involvement in Tech for Good communities helps accelerate progress with digital - building confidence, resilience and valuable connections. Plus, it's free!
