Critical Skill for Nonprofits in the Digital Age: Technical Intuition

Alix Dunn, Carr Center Technology and Human Rights Fellow, was recently interviewed in a podcast for the Stanford Social Innovation Review. 

In a world where the pace of organizational learning is often slower than the pace of technological change, activists and nonprofit leaders must develop their “technical intuition.” Not everyone needs to become a tech expert, explains Alix Dunn, of the consulting firm Computer Says Maybe, but this ongoing process of imagining, inquiring about, deciding on, and demanding technological change is critical.

In this recording from our 2019 Data on Purpose conference, Dunn walks through her guidelines to help anyone to develop these skills.
