The Tech4Good Field Guide is a collection of resources — organizations, products, services, platforms, and publications — that are useful to anyone using technology to make a positive impact.
This Guide should have useful information for you whether you’re...
- Starting your career in the social sector and have a knack for working in technology
- A seasoned tech expert who’s been working in this space for 30 years
- In the commercial tech sector and are thinking of transitioning to doing tech for good in the social sector.
I created the OpenTech4Good site as a way to capture and curate organizations and offerings in the tech / social impact space. The Field Guide builds on these efforts in a single, accessible format.
Finally, this effort could not have been carried out alone, and I would like to thank the efforts of the experts who contributed so kindly — Gina Assaf, Sarah Kozyn, Matt Haikin, Sandra Gubler, and Nick Martin.
Additionally, I’d like to thank the folks who helped on the earlier versions of the ICT4DGuide from Henry Bruce, Annie Legge, and Derek Caelin.
