NonProfit POWER Spotlight: Mary Noel
This month, NonProfit PRO is bringing you a brand-new, invite-only, tech-focused conference called NonProfit POWER, where you will have an opportunity to network with like-minded individuals who are the leaders of the nonprofit arena, and learn from the technology strategy partners who are driving that change.
What makes NonProfit POWER different is that you will be able to network and learn in an intimate setting without all the clutter and noise that you would get at a traditional conference. With only 60 attendees, you will gain invaluable knowledge from your peers at stimulating keynote sessions, boardroom case studies and one-on-one meetings, which you can then take back to your organization, implement them into your strategic plan and get one step closer to achieving your mission.
NonProfit POWER will have nonprofit experts who will give you insights on how to navigate through this new landscape and how this fundamental shift will help your organization’s long-term, sustainable growth.
Starting from a core belief that there is massive potential at the intersection of positive social good and smart business growth, Mary Noel helps clients identify opportunities to reach young people in ways that are authentic and impactful.
She started her career in the nonprofit sector working as an Americorps volunteer with a youth organization called PeaceJam International. After working in the tech startup space for almost 10 years, she's returned back to youth nonprofit joining the team at DoSomething.org.
At NonProfit POWER, she will share how your nonprofit can capitalize on younger donors and how it can enhance donor loyalty and engagement. We did a short Q&A with Mary to find her thoughts on our technology landscape.
In your opinion, how does technology fit into the nonprofit arena?
"Tech empowers nonprofits to stay relevant, scale and achieve their mission."
What is a widespread challenge for nonprofits, and how can they use technology to mitigate that challenge?
"Engaging young people! A lot of young people today are empowered to change the world on their own or are joining a community of brands rising up to the occasion to take a stand on key issues that matter most. In order for nonprofits to engage the next generation, they need to embrace technology to meet young people where they are."
Name a new technology trend that you think will significantly impact the future of nonprofit.
"Technology has made everyone a global citizen, they can see, feel and experience global challenges that were previously out of reach for them. This has huge potential to bring nonprofit impact to life."
