Now more than ever, nonprofit leaders must understand the potential technology has to help them meet their missions. They require effective ways to manage technology and lead others to use tools to further their missions and increase the efficacy of their organizations. Microsoft is pleased to be partnering with the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN) in sponsoring The Technology Leadership Academy, a 9-week online training program designed to help nonprofit leaders do just that.
Applications are due July 30th, so there are only 2 days remaining for nonprofit organizations to apply for participation in the Technology Leadership Academy.
The Academy will bring together 100 participants from 50 nonprofit organizations for a 9-week online training program designed to create nonprofit technology leaders. Qualifying organizations will be able to participate in the Academy at no charge. Participants will be selected based on the application guidelines and their commitment to full and active participation.
If you are interested in participating, apply now for the Technology Leadership Academy.
The Academy is a unique opportunity to learn and interact with nonprofit technology peers while creating a tight network of nonprofit leaders working towards a common mission: to use technology to create more social change.
Nonprofit technology leaders need to understand a few key concepts to make the right decisions for their organizations. To that end, the Academy will bring some of the best minds in nonprofit technology to its participants.
Instructors during the weekly core sessions will include nonprofit leaders like Beth Kanter, Katya Andresen, and Edward Granger-Happ. On a weekly basis, participants will also have the opportunity to interact with field experts like Charlene Li, Founder of Altimeter Group and Author of Open Leadership, in Ask the Expert sessions.
