A couple Nonprofit Leadership links

Here are a couple of helpful leadership links I saw this week through the various listservs I subscribe to.

  • The Young and Restless in a Knowledge Economy
    A recent release from CEOs for Cities examines the importance of attracting college-educated workers between the ages of 25 and 35, whose unprecedented mobility enables them to relocate to cities which have the precise assets, ethos and opportunities that they seek. “In understanding these young, educated workers, cities have their best chance of succeeding in the most competitive economic environment in history.”  Download the full report at http://www.ceosforcities.org/ResearchandResources.htm.

Ungana Afrika Research Project: Capacity Building and Tech Support in Africa NGOs

Rudi von Staden at Ungana Afrika is starting a research project looking into different ways that ICT students or recent graduates can be engaged to provide capacity building and technology support to NGOs and Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) in Africa. If you are personally involved in one, or know of other projects that he can contact to participate in the research, please contact them via http://www.ungana-afrika.org/projects/sdp.htm , which also provides more information on the project.

Idealware Donation Tools Review

Our friend and colleague Laura Quinn at Idealware reviewed twenty-seven lower-priced online software tools that accept donations from an existing website. She found that many affordable tools are also powerful, friendly, and flexible. She offers in the report recommendations for high-quality tools, as well as a method to choose the right tool for you.  View the report 

Great work, Laura!

Web Surveys and Section 508 accessibility

After launching our first-ever NGO software survey we heard from a number of people who rightly noted that the survey as it is currently hosted on survey monkey is not accessible for web users with disabilities and assistive technologies (sometimes referred to as compliance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act - see also http://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/accessibility.php and http://www.section508.gov/ for more information.) 

After some research we found that there is indeed a scarcity of inexpensive, hosted survey solutions available that are fully accessible for people with disabilities.
