Purpose, passion and innovation: 3 key drivers for Tech4Good progress

In a world where the desire to create a positive impact on society and the environment is growing, the significance of purpose-driven work is becoming increasingly evident. Recent research by McKinsey & Co revealed that 70 percent of employees now derive their sense of purpose from work, presenting a promising opportunity for Tech4Good organisations.

At the heart of Tech4Good lies the vital role of innovation, acting as a driving force for progress. How can this increased sense of purpose fuel innovation and pave the way for transformative technologies?

On 20th September, Lhasa hosted an engaging panel discussion on Tech4Good and its intertwined relationship with innovation, plus networking, with tech leaders from Lhasa and other Tech4Good organisations, as part of the Leeds Digital festival 2023!

The event provided the opportunity to connect with like-minded people and be a part of the collective effort to drive positive change!
