Webinar: Six questions to ask when using tech to improve access to justice


(Ashley van Waes) #1

This webinar explored how technology is being used to support legal empowerment, and key questions to ask when deciding how to use it in your own work.

  1. What problem are you trying to solve?
  2. How much do you really know about what your users want?
  3. Who might get left out?
  4. Has anyone tried this before?
  5. Have you left space to learn as you go through the project?
  6. Will using tech and data in new ways create new risks?

Wow, this is a popular webinar topic! So far more than 100 registrations. I’m really looking forward to the webinar with The Engine Room, to learn about their nifty Alidade tech decision-making support tool and to discuss the challenges and opportunities when implementing technology in support of legal empowerment work. It’s going to be great!

If you tried Alidade already feel free to add your reactions and questions about it here, to get the conversation going.
