Uber, Kickstarter, and Airbnb are part of the new "sharing economy" but what about bringing forth social good? Join us this Thursday, July 24 at 11 a.m. Pacific time (2 p.m. Eastern) for a free webinar to discuss What the Sharing Economy Means for Social Good.
We've written about the new collaborative economy, also called the sharing economy, here on the TechSoup Blog and on TechSoup for Libraries. What does it mean for the nonprofit, library, or social benefit sector, when the economy shifts away from traditional jobs and toward "gig" employment? What about the news reports of some of these new corporate models exploiting their staff or consumers? What opportunities are there for nonprofits and libraries to LEAD, because of our long history of shared models and community collaboration?
In this free webinar, hear from top collaborative economy analyst Jeremiah Owyang, nonprofit legal expert and co-op advocate Janelle Orsi, and community lending circle CEO Jose Quinonez about the possibilities and implications for nonprofits and libraries entering into this new economic model.
These experts will explain what the sharing economy is and how nonprofits and libraries can leverage this new model to achieve their missions and deliver social change.
Register today, as space is limited!
