Today included three really fun community conversations—the “hallway track” of this online conference—and then a lot of sessions about including stakeholders in technology projects, usability testing, and the combination of the two!
The third and final full day of the Washington State Nonprofit Conference was filled with big picture thinking about the role of nonprofits and how to effectively move organizations toward justice, diversity, equity, inclusion, accessibility, and belonging.
I’m actively participating in the Washington nonprofit community at the 2021 Washington State Nonprofit Conference. The sessions I attended on the first full day were focused on historic racism in the nonprofit sector and philanthropy and what we need to do about it.
And that’s a wrap! The third and final day of 21NTC was a whirlwind of information, ideas, and connections. I watched presentations inclusive facilitation, long-form content, and equitable project management and design. But the keynote was the clear highlight of the day with a critical message for us all.
21NTC kept the learning and connections flowing! Here are my notes about web accessibility, diagramming as a tool for communication, iterative website improvement, and a few nuggets from a keynote conversation by Nikole Hannah-Jones.
Day 1 of NTC had me learning about discriminatory “race blind” AI, how to build equitable structures and a better nonprofit sector, consent in user experience design, more accessible data visualizations, and, of course, WordPress!
