Smart tech is becoming embedded in nonprofit work freeing up staff to focus on donor retention, program innovation, and better work-life balance. Learn what’s needed to reinvent work and achieve transformative impact with an ethical and human-centered approach to adopting smart tech.

In their book, The Smart Nonprofit, Beth Kanter and Allison Fine use “smart tech” as an umbrella term for advanced digital technologies that make decisions for people. It includes artificial intelligence (AI) and its subsets and cousins, such as machine learning, natural language processing, smart forms, chatbots, robots, and more.

During this webinar, Beth Kanter and Allison Fine will provide an overview of what smart tech is and does, inspiring use-cases, and why it is important for nonprofits to integrate it carefully into their organizations.

They will also offer a framework for successfully using smart tech that includes staying human-centered, preparing your people and organization for implementing smart tech, and staying knowledgeable and reflective. They will also share tips for broad stakeholder engagement, including senior leadership, in the planning and implementation of smart tech.

This webinar will provide:

  • an overview of The Smart Nonprofit, inspiring nonprofit use-cases for program delivery, fundraising, and the back office;
  • the steps for assessing the responsible and ethical use of smart tech and implementing it well within your organization; and,
  • information on how to engage a wide group of stakeholders in the implementation of smart tech.
