The Tech That Comes Next: How Changemakers, Philanthropists, and Technologists Can Build an Equitable World

The Tech That Comes Next: How Changemakers, Philanthropists, and Technologists Can Build an Equitable World

Who is part of technology development, who funds that development, and how we put technology to use all influence the outcomes that are possible. To change those outcomes, we must—all of us—shift our relationship to technology—how we use it, build it, fund it, and more.

Join us for a fireside chat featuring Afua Bruce, Sue Hendrickson, and Amritha Jayanti, who will discuss the future role and applications of the technology pushing the social impact sector forward.

Their conversation will explore the implications of the use, creation, and funding of technology and how social impact organizations, technologists, funders, policymakers, and—most importantly—communities can accelerate change for the better.

The Berkman Klein Center is pleased to present this event in collaboration with the Belfer Center to highlight the Technology and Public Purpose (TAPP) Project and Bruce's new book (with Amy Sample Ward) The Tech That Comes Next.
