Digital Leaders Week will take place across the UK with more than 500 events, including webinars and round tables, across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
One highlight of Digital Leaders Week in Wales will be #TechFest4SocialGood, a virtual festival for the Third Sector to explore and discover the potential of digital for their organisation. Delivered by the Wales Co-operative Centre, it will be framed around the question, “How can digital technology improve lives and communities for people in Wales?” The festival is for social enterprises, community groups and voluntary organisations keen to explore digital solutions, ideas, innovations and technologies that could help them work more efficiently and increase their impact.
The event will build on the success of the first #TechFest4SocialGood held in 2020. Digital leaders from the public, private, third and social business sectors will be there to share their knowledge and experience of using technology for social good.
Karen said: “We are extremely excited to be working with Digital Leaders UK to put on Digital Leaders Week in Wales, including #TechFest4SocialGood. We’re also keen to encourage other Welsh organisations to put on virtual events during the week.
“Over the week, organisations from the public, private, third and social business sectors will look at best practice in their sectors, have the chance to meet other organisations that can help them develop digital solutions, all while building their peer-to-peer networks. Watch this space over the coming months for more information about the amazing things we have planned for the week!”
