Why IT Matters

Why does anything we do matter? What can we do to increase our impact, change our perspective, and make a difference in our worlds? Why IT Matters is a series of conversations hosted by Tracy Kronzak and Tim Lockie of Now IT Matters, about change, especially as experienced by nonprofits, technology experts, and the worlds that are served by the impact economy. What are we willing to do to change the course of our work, and who are the leaders, executives, and everyday heroes offering ideas and actions? We invite you to listen to conversations that begin with nonprofit technologists and continue to encompass philanthropy, faith, business leadership, and systemic racism. This podcast is about not being defined, and our conversations evolve and grow, accordingly.
