Tech Forward Speaker Spotlight: Karen Graham

Tech Forward is excited to welcome Karen Graham to Nashville this September!

Karen Graham is a sought-after speaker, trainer, writer, and consultant with expertise in technology leadership and innovation, nonprofit software, and digital strategy. As Idealware’s Executive Director, she leads a team of researchers, presenters, and writers who create technology information resources—including the Consumers’ Guide to Donor Management Systems—designed to help nonprofit leaders out their vision into action.

Her past experience includes leadership roles in capacity building, arts, and human service organizations as well as a software startup. She holds an MBS in Nonprofit Management from the University of St. Thomas.

In her breakout session, “Innovating Programs through Technology,” hear Karen share inspiring stories of real organization who have used their lack of resources to create innovation through existing technologies. Innovation does not always have to mean new!

Join us this September in Nashville to hear Karen and many other leaders in the nonprofit technology sector!
