Digital innovations are transforming how organizations enable communities to lift themselves out of poverty. NGOs, social enterprises and nonprofits on the frontlines of global development are deploying mobile tech to better understand their impact and their added value they have in the communities they operate in. Our panel session will act as a forum to educate and engage attendees about how leading organizations such as Solar Sister, d.light and iDE have deployed mobile technology such as TaroWorks in the field, how they are using it to improve and scale their impact as well as share best practices. In addition, panelists will offer a candid take on the challenges and successes they've had to date leveraging mobile tech.

Leading the panel will be Emily Tucker, CEO of TaroWorks. TaroWorks is a solution which enables organizations working in the most remote parts of the planet to collect data, monitor their impact, and manage field operations in real-time using mobile devices.

Attendees will come away from the panel session knowing what mobile technologies such as TaroWorks makes possible, and the use cases that make it promising in helping organizations fight poverty.
