Since their inception, the Principles for Digital Development team have promoted knowledge and best practice in the adoption of digital technologies for development, facilitated community dialogue, and produced educational content for development practitioners. As we keep pace with our growing endorser community and new content production, we want to ensure that our means of engagement and communication continue to improve and we remain as accessible as possible.
Backed by funding from the Norwegian Agency for Development Cooperation (Norad), we are launching Pulse on the Principles – a podcast and webinar series covering the intersection of technology and development! Pulse on the Principles will feature conversations with digital development experts discussing successes, challenges, and the potential for putting the Digital Principles into practice. In the first season (launching June 30, 2020), we will cover topics such as COVID-19, responsible data use, gender and inclusion, and digital literacy within development organizations.
Sharing successes, challenges, and lessons learned in digital development through this medium will allow for one-on-one conversation with experts and for the Digital Principles team to directly interact with global stakeholders. Pulse on the Principles seeks to provide the community with greater access to content and presents new opportunities for endorsers, partners, and Forum members to participate with us and one another beyond historic mediums.
Pulse on the Principles will launch on June 30, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern Standard time with a webinar discussing improving diversity and inclusion practices in development. RSVP now!
