The Tech that Comes Next: How Changemakers, Philanthropists and Technologists Can Build an Equitable World is a newly released book by authors Amy Sample Ward and Afua Bruce.

For an overview of the questions asked to the speakers and where to find them in the recording, please see the YouTube description.

In the book, Amy and Afua explore the use, creation, and funding of technology.

We are increasingly living in a digital world, and this has significant implications for social purpose organizations, how they engage with stakeholders and how organizations deliver on their missions. The book covers a wide range of topics from software development to shift the policy and legal landscape around technology.

The Tech that Comes Next is focused on weaving social justice and equity into all of the ways we talk about creating or using technology in our work to change the world. Amy and Afua keep people at the centre of the conversation about technology and advocate for strategies that include committing to inclusion, accelerating experimentation, and developing new models for investment.

Amy and Afua bring deep experience in the technology and social justice fields. Their book is a must-read for social purpose organizations, nonprofits, philanthropists, and technology providers.

Speakers: Amy Sample Ward, NTEN, Afua Bruce, Author, and Liz Weaver, Tamarack Institute
