AF-Detroit: Innovation, Technology, and Its Social Impact With Darrell Booker

March 29, 2023 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Detroit Beer Co.

1529 Broadway St., Detroit, MI 48226

The AF-Detroit Chapter will host a discussion about the innovation of technology for social impact. This event will be held at Detroit Beer Co on Wednesday, March 29, 2023.

Technology has a significant impact on the way companies operate internally. Specifically, technology has allowed for new and more efficient ways of performing tasks and communicating within organizations. Advances in cloud computing have made it possible for employees to access their work files from any computer or device, regardless of location. This has led to a more flexible and mobile workforce. Mobility and flexibility are keys to a successful business and society. The question is what is our role with digital transformation for social impact and why is it important to free society.

This discussion will be led by Darrell Booker who is the leader of one of Microsoft’s most important racial equity commitments, Nonprofit Tech Acceleration of Black and African American Communities, a speaker, and Technology Strategist. Darrell’s role with Microsoft is a multi-year program that includes strategic deep digital transformations via three year partnerships with 50+ nonprofits having significant impact or innovation possibility in the Black community.

More importantly, NTA includes a broad motion with a marketing outreach to 30K+ community based nonprofits to bring awareness and ultimately adoption of the Microsoft technologies that will help increase the impact of their mission. He also has experience as the Azure senior technical solutions sales leader within Tech for Social Impact, helping to empower nonprofits globally to address the world’s most pressing needs and assisting in leading the “Digital Transformation for Social Impact” go-to-market and working with these nonprofits to maximize their social impact through the power of Microsoft platforms.

Please join us for this one of a kind discussion with drinks and food on us.
