I’ve got some very exciting news, my new book,The Smart Nonprofit: Staying Human-Centered in an Automated World, co-authored with Allison Fine, launches on Wednesday, March 9th.
The Smart Nonprofit is a jargon-free roadmap for nonprofit staff, boards, volunteers, and funders on the ways “smart technologies” like artificial intelligence are changing social change work. Smart tech will take over the time-consuming administrative tasks that make work feel overwhelming and endless, and that can lead to staff burnout and a lack of forward progress.
And here’s the most exciting part: Smart nonprofits create a “dividend of time,” a gift of new time that can be spent with clients and donors, preventing crises, thinking, learning, and even dreaming!
You can purchase the book on Amazon!
