That’s good news for NGOs

Last year during a NetHope collaboration summit of nonprofit and for-profit technology leaders, the head of corporate affairs for a leading software company leaned over to me and said, “Guess what the number three question applicants are asking us now?” Building the suspense, she cited the obvious number one and two questions about salary and career path. “What’s your corporate social responsibility program,” she delivered word-by-word after a pause, “It wasn’t even on the radar screen three years ago.”

When I asked Paul Amorello, their CIO, what we could do as a quid pro quo for what his team did for us, helping to upgrade to Active Directory, he said. “you already did it.” “Oh?” I asked. “Yes, when my team came back on Monday morning they were all charged up about the work they had done at Save. That made it more than worthwhile.”
