The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Limited Capacity seats available

ICT4D efforts have an 80% failure rate. Make this failure rate history by targeting the real change agents in a community - women and marginalized groups who do not often get to take advantage of ICT access and use - certainly not often once we leave the community. Development can only occur to the degree that the least empowered people are positively affected: women migrate less, manage the family and the land, and are often purposely discouraged from "developing" as it threatens the status quo that wishes to protect the more powerful. Come and bring your ICT4D interventions to my office hours, and we can discuss actionable strategies to encourage power-sharing between men and women, ways to uniquely reach and train women on ICT, and other methods for making your ICTD effort succeed and buck the failure trend by being strategically inclusive.
