Across the globe, NGOs are faced with this reality: online effectiveness is mission-critical.
But what does that look like for NGOs? Which digital tools and online spaces are most effective?
The truth is, the definition of online success – and how to get there - differs from organisation to organisation; the answers are not universal. But the conversation around it includes some issues that every NGO must consider.
Join us for a collaborative round-table discussion in which we’ll discuss these questions and explore the issue of civil society and digital spaces from a variety of perspectives, including:
- What is the role of Social Media in building civil society?
- How is digital fundraising changing the donor relationship and giving overall?
- What are some of the risks and challenges of digital spaces, and what can non-profits to address these?
- What is the political / regulatory environment and implications of a new NPO Act?
- What is the future of digital spaces for civil society - opportunities, challenges and potential threats?
- What is the importance of credibility and validation within the sector?
Our panelists include: Jeri Curry, president and CEO, Enset; Baratang Miya, founder and CEO, GirlHype; Michelle Jones, head of content for digital agency RogerWilco; Gabrielle Ritchie, CEO, The Change Room; Colin Habberton: IFC Ambassador, South Africa; and Michelle Matthews, Head of ED and Innovation, CiTi.
