Who this course is for:

Comments from registrants:
"A myriad of tools, and the important questions to ask about what you need out of tools, like does it have dependencies features?" - Shalae Flores, Digital Organizer, Lucha
"I loved the concept of the tech stack and the gaps in our systems that were obvious to me after seeing the user cases. I've already told my coworkers they need to see this one and then we should debrief and brainstorm together."
- Megan Hise, Communications Organizer, Oregon Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals (OFNHP)
"There are so many tools out there, it is overwhelming to try and research them all , especially as a small organization with limited time. Getting tips on what digital resources are out there and recommended has been invaluable for us."
- Ulla Nilsen, Engagement Director, Minnesota 350
