Tech & Society Webinar: Building Digital Capacity in Government

Our next Tech & Society webinar aims to help the Humanity in Action community learn more about the government technology space, and the potential for technology to improve the way government delivers important services. Please join us on April 24th at 12pm for this interesting discussion.

Through better use of technology, governments -- local, state, and federal -- have the potential to become more efficient, responsive, and better able to serve society. Government technology can help governments deliver better services to millions of people, and even change or deepen the way that governments engage with its citizens.

However, technology innovation in the public sector also comes with its own unique challenges. Technology is not a panacea for fixing systematic problems that are limiting public services, and meaningful change also requires a high investment -- not just in the technology, but also in the people who work in government.

Join us to discuss interesting projects and initiatives that are underway to build digital capacity within government, as well as the unique opportunities & challenges that governments face regarding technology. For those working in government who want to better leverage technology in their work, technologists who want to learn more about opportunities in government tech, and others generally interested in the topic, this will be an engaging and informative panel discussion with experts at the city and federal level.
Why attend?
  • Discuss interesting projects and initiatives that are underway to build digital capacity within government.

  • Explore the unique opportunities & challenges that governments face regarding technology.

  • And more!
