Communities are an integral part of our work. They participate from the very beginning in helping us identify new social problems to tackle through design and eventual launch of new software for social good. They include a diverse group of community stakeholders, technologists, business leaders, nonprofit experts, researchers, legal specialists and others whose breadth and depth of knowledge are critical to our ability to create impact and scale. These communities are both the enablers and recipients of our work, thus ensuring that software’s benefits are fully realized.
Examples of communities that volunteers lend their time and expertise to:
- DIAGRAM Center – working groups focused on technology to create accessible content for students with disabilities
- Code Alliance – community of software developers and other technology professionals helping nonprofits scale their social good impact
- Bookshare – volunteers who help proofread books, mentor other teachers, and serve as parent ambassadors for the world’s largest library for people with print disabilities
- Human Rights – Advisory Board and user testing groups guide work and help teams manage global challenges
