Details

Nonprofit projects come in all types and sizes, and managing them is rarely your sole job. Success is often found not in simply getting “the thing” done, but in managing the process along the way. When multiple deadlines, teammates, and deliverables are involved, things can get scary.

There are many digital tools out there to help you tackle your projects and "get 'er done"—from full-blown project management platforms to communication and file-sharing tools. Get a survey of the digital project management tools out there with advice and opinions from the pros.

Join PDXTech4Good and project management pros from around Portland for a roundtable conversation on digital project management tools. We'll explore:

FMYI
Trello
Basecamp
Jira
Slack
and more!

WHAT YOU'LL GET OUT OF PDXTECH4GOOD EVENTS

Nonprofit staffers will find a friendly, welcoming atmosphere for those not experienced with technology, and many chances to ask questions of tech-experienced nonprofits and experts.

Techies will find opportunities to hear the real-world stories of nonprofit clients, and put their own expertise to social good — as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in our community.

Activists and community organizers will see and be given the chance to present on successful uses of technology for social change. We'll explore how technology can help support activism and where activism can push it forward.
