Take advantage of AI breakthroughs to bring your organization to the next level!

Social impact organizations are responding to an era of breakthrough advances in AI and other innovative approaches. While new potential can be exhilarating, the pace of change can feel relentless, and many in the social impact community are left with questions of how to best utilize these technologies to power their impact. A new webinar series from the Blackbaud Institute offers strategies, tactics, and tools for leaders and change agents to move forward in this evolving landscape.
