SWIDN International Programmes Staff Working Group - Working lunch with guest speaker from Ushahidi

A Working Group for employees of SWIDN Member organisations who directly manage an international development or humanitarian programme.

A chance to meet other international programmes staff, share your experiences and learn new skills for managing overseas development and humanitarian programmes.

Join other SWIDN international staff for a working lunch with guest speaker Eriol of the design team at Ushahidi (https://www.ushahidi.com). Eriol will take us through a brief history of Ushahidi and then dive right into the platform that crowd sources real peoples' thoughts, opinions and needs. We'll cover what it can do for human rights activism, crisis response, election monitoring and more, as well as looking at some of the key deployments over Ushahidi's 10 year history to date with time for questions and discussion.

Please note that this is a bring your own (BYO) lunch event.
