 Information and Technology in Human Services: Who's at the Table and How We Can Work Together More Effectively Sponsored by Alumni in Performance Measurement and Management, the NYU Wagner Office of Alumni Relations, and the New York Consortium of Evaluators Date: Wednesday, April 2, 2014 Time: 9:00am-10:30am Location: 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Fl., NYC                    Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue Different groups of stakeholders in the human service sector (nonprofit leaders, policy makers, government funders, philanthropic funders, evaluators, service delivery staff, clients, etc.) understand the role of data and technology in the human services sector in different ways. Lack of coordination among these various players leads to very concrete challenges in the development of information systems. Nonprofits have a lot of potential in using data and technology in new and innovative ways, but they often struggle with the most mundane challenges of data management, basic technology support, and meeting the requirements of government and philanthropic funders. How can the human services sector push past these basic challenges to benefit from the great potential that data and modern technology hold? The panelists will discuss these challenges with an eye towards solutions that are relevant for both individual organizations/projects as well as the human services sector as a whole. Panelists: Ivy Pool – Executive Director, HHS Connect at the NYC Mayor’s Office of Operations Marlowe Greenberg - Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Foothold Technology Brad Dudding – Chief Operating Officer, Center for Employment Opportunity Derek Coursen, Director of Planning & Informatics at Public Health Solutions Moderator: Patrick Germain, Director of Strategy & Evaluation, Project Renewal and President of the New York Consortium of Evaluators

His best-selling book “Uncharitable: How Restraints on Nonprofits Undermine Their Potential,” ventures into a world that others dare not go, and argues that society’s non-profit ethic undermines our ability to eradicate great problems, and, ironically, puts charity at a severe disadvantage to the for-profit sector at every level.

03/11/2014 Cafecito: What's going on in Venezuela?
Cafecito: What's going on in Venezuela? Sponsored by Association of Latin@s and Allies in Public Service (ALAS) Date: Tuesday, March 11, 2014 Time: 2:30pm- 3:30pm Location: 295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Fl., NYC                       The Rudin Family Forum for Civic Dialogue On February 12th, thousands of students hit the streets in Venezuela's major cities leading a demonstration that demands better security, and an end to goods shortages and protected freedom of speech. However, as the protest began to gain support the government led by Nicolas Maduro, began to suppress them violently, ending in several students killed. Since then, a divided Venezuela, led by the younger student generations, has continued to march against the government repression, lack of security and economic conditions. Maduro has blamed the students of conspiring against the government, and has imprisoned the major opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, accusing him of terrorism. The demonstrations have not stopped and neither the repression. In our cafecito we will discuss the implications of this movement for Venezuela and for the Latin-American region.
