Equitable Tech: How Technology and Data Impact Equitable Outcomes
As traditional grantmaking practices are being up-ended with the global pandemic and renewed energy around racial, social, and economic justice, what’s taking tech so long to catch up? PEAK, Technology Association of Grantmakers, GrantAdvisor, and Grantbook put together Philanthropy, Tech & Equity, a four-part series illuminating how philanthropy can leverage technology to drive equitable grantmaking practices and build a social justice movement, step by step. We guarantee to satisfy secret (and not-so-secret) accidental techies, data nerds, and tech futurists alike as we take you on a learning journey around philanthropy, technology, and equity.
Principle #3 in social justice work: Apply an equity lens. Or, even better, get that equity Lasik. Once we understand our community and the landscape we work within, we need to start asking some tough questions. This thought-leader session explores all the ways that technology and data can help – or hinder – our equity goals. You’ll walk away with concrete action steps for examining your own technology frame.
