Would you like to know more about how technology will affect your organisation and sector? Would you like to hear what the leaders in this area from Stanford University have learned so you can feed it into what your organisation is doing?

Digital Impact is a one-day forum never before offered in Australia about leveraging the digital revolution to benefit Australia’s philanthropy and nonprofit sectors. The goals are to:
- link Australian NPOs and foundations into a new international movement – and position our sector to take advantage of emerging data practices
- learn from what nonprofit and philanthropy sectors are doing elsewhere
- share outstanding examples of what some Australian and other nonprofit organisations (NPOs) are doing
- spotlight existing resources not widely known across the sector, and
- consider issues and ideas for policy and ongoing action.
It is designed to cover the basics plus extend what you know – whether you are a technology novice or more experienced.
International leaders in this area, The Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford University’s Centre on Philanthropy and Civil Society are delivering this forum in 10 locations around the world. QUT’s ACPNS has worked with the well known Lucy Bernholz and her team to bring Australia into this global program. EY is providing a great venue and a range of sector supporters, such as the Department of Social Services, the Community Services Industry Alliance and its members, and QUT’s Institute for Future Environments are working together to gather attendees from across the country and Australian speakers to add to the international expertise. This is intentionally cross-sector – nonprofit, philanthropy, government, industry – to focus on the issues and possibilities.
One of the most important questions facing all sizes and types of NPOs worldwide today is how technology can support their work for the community. Australian nonprofits
spend half of what for-profit organisations do on technology training for their staff, are not prioritising technology and yet need it urgently. Disruption is already hitting organisations – and offering new opportunities.
This forum aims to enable the sector to benefit from and maximise nonprofit impact in the digital age.
