Event description

Description

Online effectiveness is mission-critical. But what does that even look like for NGOs? 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 experts in the digital field will 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 nonprofits do to address these?
  • What are the political/regulatory environment and implications of a new NPO Act?
  • What new technology and tools are available to non-profits?
  • How are technology partners supporting civil society and non-profits globally?
  • How does internet governance work and what voice does civil society have?
  • How can non-profits lay the foundation for effective online engagement?
  • 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? 

Panelists will include:

  • Jeri Curry, President and CEO of Enset
  • Baratang Miya, Founder and CEO of GirlHype
  • Michelle Jones, Head of Content for Digital Agency RogerWilco
  • Gabrielle Ritchie, CEO of The Change Room
  • Colin Habberton, IFC Ambassador South Africa
  • Michelle Matthews, Head of ED and Innovation, CiTi
