Episode Info

On this week’s show we talk about digital maturity in the charity sector. We’ll also find out more about some awesome new Girl Scout badges, such as coding for good and Tom is going to rant about recycling. 

Our guest this week is Nissa Ramsay. Nissa is a freelance research consultant working in the tech for good space. You can find her on Twitter @NissaRamsay

In her own words, it’s pretty niche, but if what you do sounds like what Nissa does - i.e. you work in UK charity sector, freelance, in the tech for good space, but basically you are not a tech person - then join their community. Or send them info on projects you need (paid) help for and want to advertise to freelancers:
