Digital Impact: Policy and Practice for the Nonprofit Sector in 2017

January 17, 2017 5:30 pm

January 17, 2017

5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Cubberley Auditorium

In this digital day and age we’re grappling with questions like:

  • What are the key digital policy issues that matter to nonprofits in 2017?
  • What are the most pressing challenges to nonprofits and activists?
  • What should nonprofits, foundations and community activists know about? How can they get involved? And what should they be doing to keep themselves and their communities safe?

This event will help inform and open a conversation on this topic with our audience of foundation and nonprofit leaders, students, philanthropists and more.
