Anthropomorphizing Technology

Emily Hicks-Rotella returns to the SnapCast. Emily is a Nonprofit Data & Tech Strategist with her firm, Make Tech Work For You. We talk about what positive data & tech culture looks like. Our conversation covered:

  • What is data & tech culture, and why is it important to consider?
  • Three foundational sub-cultures necessary for fostering positive data & tech culture at NPOs: a Culture of Learning, encouraging continuous professional development; a Culture of Using, promoting job-embedded training and coaching; and a Culture of Loving, nurturing a positive long-term relationship with data and technology.
  • How will culture look different at different nonprofits – based on size, location, mission, budget, etc.
  • Examples of organizations/people in this work as well. Specifically organizations like CTData and COMPASS youth collaborative, which have really well built cultures, and also smaller orgs like Our Justice and the Digital Defense Fund
