 How to Use Our ICT4D Expertise to
Change America?

RSVP Now for the next Technology Salon DC
Washington, DC - February 3 - RSVP Now
Many individuals and organizations who have leveraged technology for development, organizing, and identity-based conflict prevention abroad are noting similarities between the current challenges and context of the U.S. and their work abroad, but aren't sure if and how their experience and expertise can be leveraged in the U.S.

At the same time, organizations who have worked on these challenges within the U.S. face a new and challenging context. Join us for a conversation on if and how we could bridge this gap. This intimate gathering will include organizations and individuals working within the U.S. (with and without technology) and international technology for development/peace practitioners.

Together we will identify the shared expertise and challenges of these communities and begin to identify ways in which the tech for development/peace community can constructively engage with and support efforts to address the current challenges we face in the U.S.

Please RSVP now join these thought leaders in an open discussion on what we all can do to create the four-year future we want to see in the world: Please RSVP now to join us in search for answers to questions like these:
  • How can we apply lessons from international peacebuilding and community engagement efforts to a changing domestic political and social landscape?
  • What gaps exist in domestic engagement technology that could be filled by existing ICT4D tools?
  • How best can the international ICT4D community engage in support of domestic groups and organizations working to address new challenges?
We’ll have hot coffee and catered breakfast treats for a morning rush, but seating is limited, so please RSVP now. Once we reach our 35-person capacity there will be a waiting list!

About the Technology Salon

The Technology Salon™ is an intimate, informal, and in person, discussion between information and communication technology experts and international development professionals, with a focus on both:
  • Technology's impact on donor-sponsored technical assistance delivery, and
  • Private enterprise driven economic development, facilitated by technology.
Our meetings are lively conversations, not boring presentations. Attendance is capped at 35 people - and frank participation with ideas, opinions, and predictions is actively encouraged. 

It's also a great opportunity to meet others motivated to employ technology to solve vexing development problems. Join us today!
