How nonprofits reimagine work using smart technology
On-demand Virtual Event (1 hour)

Nonprofits need time to think big and plan strategically, but operational demands often overburden staff with repetitive, administrative tasks. Automated tools can help nonprofits avoid burnout and focus on the health and wellbeing of employees and volunteers. By leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) technologies like artificial intelligence and machine learning the nonprofit sector can remake human-centered work.

Join us as Beth Kanter and Allison Fine, authors of The Smart Nonprofit: Staying Human-Centered in An Automated World, bust misconceptions about smart technology and explore ways smart technologies are redesigning work in the social sector. Learn from AWS experts on what these terms really mean, and how AWS tools can help automatize routine tasks and enable your team to focus on what really matters.

Who should attend this event?
This webinar spotlights how nonprofits have the opportunity to re-humanize work with the adoption of smart tech and taking a human-centered approach. Tune in if you’re looking to hear about the ways nonprofits can use AWS to transform their organization into a smart nonprofit.
