In This Issue… In honour of International Women’s Day this month, we bring you stories and resources that focus on the intersection between women, technology and nonprofits. We’ve also pulled together great webinar panelists for the end of March from organisations serving women in Bangladesh, Hong Kong and the Philippines who will share stories about how they use technology to better serve women and girls. We hope you’ll be as inspired as we were by the stories in this month’s edition of Tech4Good.
