So … bbcon, the tech gathering for social good, is happening in Baltimore starting today! Robin Wright, humanitarian and actress, will give the keynote. Fission’s CEO Cheryl Contee has three sessions where you can catch her speaking at the Baltimore Convention Center:

1. Nonprofit Kick Off: Growth Hacking Your Mission with People Power

Tuesday, October 17 at 10:30 am ET in Ballroom 3

Technology is shifting how social change is made and who the change makers are. Anyone with a smartphone, passion for a cause and few hundred followers can raise awareness, mobilize others, raise money – and already are! Our panel of industry experts will discuss how to scale your mission by blending modern technology with a commitment to support your volunteers who want to do more. It’s all part of Blackbaud’s vision for aligning technology, intelligence, and expertise to your fundraising, operations, and program management needs.
Speakers:

  • Jay Odell, Blackbaud (moderator)
  • Cheryl Contee, Fission Strategy
  • Michael Silberman, Mobilisation Lab
  • Christopher Masak, Alzheimer’s Association
  • Carie Lewis Carlson, Humane Society
    Wednesday 10/18

Speaker:

  • Cheryl Contee, CEO

3. Featured Session: A Culture of Philanthropic Innovation

Wednesday, October 18, 2:15 pm in Meeting Room 349/350,

Today and tomorrow’s evolving social issues can’t be solved with yesterday’s approaches. Many in the nonprofit sector have realized that having a mentality of scarcity leads to scarcity of success. This creates painfully high turnover and unsustainable relationships between constituents and organizations. A culture shift is necessary to allow our organizations and individuals to be more agile in achieving our missions and spreading social good. However, this kind of culture shift cannot be achieved unless the entire organization is on board. It’s time for a frank discussion on the role each and every one of us—from leadership to board, database managers to finance teams—can and must play to foster an open, innovative culture of philanthropy. Join this panel of experts as they get the conversation started by sharing their perspectives on what building a “culture of philanthropic innovation” truly means for today’s organizations. They’ll discuss the trends shaping the future of the sector and the practices you can employ at every level to ensure that everyone in your organization is nimble, open, and ready to meet those changing needs.

Speakers:

  • Cheryl Contee, CEO, Fission Strategy & Co-Founder, Attentive.ly
  • Shanon Doolittle, Fundraising Strategist + Mentor
  • Amy Sample Ward, CEO, NTEN
  • Rachel Hutchisson, Vice President, Corporate Citizenship & Philanthropy, Blackbaud
