Who’s behind all of this and how can I be involved?

As per the Journey page, support is available at different levels:

  • Build your personal practice
  • Transform your workplace culture
  • Coordinate Systems Level Change

The final bullet is about creating the overarching conditions for tech stewardship in and across different sectors and sub communities. Practically speaking, this means joining the Tech Stewardship Network. There are two options for this:

  • TS Network – Organizational Membership – benefits include:
    • Being at the cutting edge of an emerging movement will provide strategic insights and collaboration opportunities.
    • Supporting your people to skillfully navigate value tensions inherent in technology will enhance your employee recruitment, development and retention.
    • Expressing visible leadership in helping ensure technology is beneficial for all will strengthen your global brand.
  • TS Network – Individual Membership – we are evolving a range of roles:
    • Governance Committee
    • Strategy Committee
    • Resourcing Committee
    • Curators
    • Ambassadors
    • Thought Leaders
    • Working Groups
    • Initiative Lead

We are executing our Theory of Change in phases:

  • Phase 1 – leveraging the ecosystems of initial key players (i.e. Engineering Change Lab Canada and MaRS Discovery District) to focus on a few sub-communities with a light governance model.
  • Phase 2 – scaling partnerships (particularly with organizations and initiatives that are cultivating tech stewardship in different sub-communities) while working together to expand support for different sub-communities and evolve our governance model.
  • Phase 3 – robust coverage of sub-communities with a fully distributed governance model that supports further engagement with minimal constraints

Which partners and sub-communities (geographies, sectors, grand challenges, professions, specific technologies) we engage next will largely be dependent on who steps up, so please contact us if you’re interested in getting involved.
