Have you ever felt ‘tech shame’?
It’s that feeling when you’re using a new or complicated digital tool or device and you just can’t figure it out.
And with so many other things to work on, you don’t have the time to really get stuck into it to work it out.
So you leave it until another time.
But then you feel guilty.
You think, ‘everyone else in the sector is racing ahead in the sector by using digital but I can’t seem to keep up‘.
But you’re not alone.

The Human Stack – Tired of Bad Data? Focus On Feelings, Not Features
Speaker: Tim Lockie, The Human Stack
Ever wonder why some organizations rave about their technology, and others feel in a constant state of SOS? If you are using today’s modern tools and are not feeling optimistic about your technology, chances are, it’s not the technology that got you there. Human emotions, expectations, and experiences significantly impact nonprofits’ use of the technology they have, for better or for worse. Technology is innately human; after all, humans built every (mega)bit of it. Therefore, when implementing and using these technologies, we must remember to pay as much attention to the human element as the tech itself. This session evaluates how human aspects like emotions, expectations, and experience affect a nonprofit’s technology engagement from implementation to everyday operations and how behavior changes can create better outcomes.
