Digital Impact Conference 

Mumbai Cricket Association, Mumbai


This event is organised by the Digital Civil Society Lab, Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, in partnership with GuideStar India. It will see Dr. Anja Kovacs in conversation with Dr. Lucy Bernholz, Director, Digital Civil Society Lab, in the session on ‘Considering Bias’. They will be discussing the role of bias in data and algorithms, strategies for addressing these biases, and the broader implications for civil society.

Digital data offer a world of possibilities for civil society to achieve greater impact. Digital resources also present a new set of responsibilities and challenges for civil society.

The Digital Civil Society Lab at the Stanford Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society is exploring the implications of the digital age for global civil society, and applying that knowledge to build a universal framework for civil society to use digital resources safely, ethically and effectively, in line with their unique missions and purpose.

The event in Mumbai is the tenth in a series that has also visited Beijing, Berlin, Brisbane, Brussels, Cape Town, London, Palo Alto, Toronto, and New York City.

The Digital Impact Conferences around the world are designed to bring together civil society leaders, scholars, funders, and policy makers to create new relationship and to challenge the standard thinking about nonprofits and technology. The aspiration for the day is to identify opportunities for the actions necessary – in software design, organizational practice, and state and national policy – for civil society to thrive in the digital age.
