Reimaging Tech as a Driver of Systems Change

Jim Fruchterman July 11, 2022

Tech by itself will never ignite systems change.  However, innovation without tech will never reach systems change scale. Perla Ni of Community Connect Labs, and Jim Fruchterman of Tech Matters and Benetech, come together in a fireside chat on the SOCAP stage to discuss the challenges of using tech social enterprise to support large scale change. The expanding health and global mental health crisis, exacerbated by the pandemic, creates an unprecedented demand for software innovation to meet the moment.  This is an opportunity to hear about a range of exciting opportunities to use tech to address crisis response in mental health.

Purpose and Desired Outcome

Perla and Jim feel that software and data will underpin the great majority of successful systems change efforts in the coming decade. Their goal is to leave the audience, both in the room and globally via a podcast, with stories and concrete ideas of how to use tech effectively to scale up systems change across hundreds or even thousands of organizations working on a shared challenge.
