Women in Tech: An Interview with Amy Sample Ward, CEO of NTEN

Today's interview is with Amy Sample Ward, CEO of The Nonprofit Technology Network, an international nonprofit based in Portland, Oregon. 

Amy is dedicated to educating and supporting organizations in using technology to create meaningful community engagement and make lasting change. Whether it is by connecting individuals, organizations, campaigns, or possibilities, Amy hopes to facilitate the nonprofit technology sector transitioning into a movement-based force for positive change.

In addition to serving as NTEN’s CEO, she is a speaker, author, and trainer having worked with groups and spoken at events around the world. In 2013, she co-authored Social Change Anytime Everywhere: How to implement online multichannel strategies to spark advocacy, raise money, and engage your community with Allyson Kapin. She previously co-authored Social by Social, a handbook in using social technologies for social impact, and has contributed to various other publications about social change and technology.

In this conversation we discuss opportunities for women leaders in the technology sector and how tech empowers you to take on more leadership in your career and for your organization. 

I hope you enjoy!
