The Taproot Foundation's U.S. Pro Bono Summit is an annual gathering of leaders from across sectors and industries with a shared vision to make the talents and skills of the business community accessible to social change organizations.
How can pro bono service help nonprofits access technology solutions that transform their organizations and solve our communities’ challenges? That’s what Taproot sought to discover at Bridging the Technology Divide, our crosssector technology convening at Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Chelsea office. The day was comprised of a group of leaders in technology and service coming together to explore and collectively shape how we can solve social sector needs with technology expertise.
