Thursday Awards
We'll kick off Day 2 by announcing winners of the NTENny Awards, and the 2015 DoGooder Video Awards. These awards will recognize compelling cause–based videos that aim to advance social change and create real impact. Organized in collaboration with See3 Communications and YouTube, we are wowed every year by the changemakers using this powerful medium to tellstories, raise awareness about critical issues, and inspire action.

Thursday Plenary
Following the awards, we'll jump into the Day 2 Plenary: Momentum for Change: Addressing Diversity in Nonprofit Tech

The nonprofit sector has been criticized as much as the technology sector for lack of diversity in both technology and leadership roles. The nptech (nonprofit technology) community, and all of us at the NTC, sit at the intersection of those sectors with a unique opportunity to set a path forward.

This participatory plenary intends to engage everyone in the room–when we all participate in the conversation, we can all start participating in the solutions. The panelists will share their unique perspectives, offer ideas, and pose questions for all of us to discuss. Attendees will engage in dialogue at their tables throughout the session. We will actively monitor Twitter for questions, highlights, and ideas to share with the panel and full room.

We are excited to create a stage–literally and figuratively–to elevate this conversation, and thank our panelists and attendees for participating in a productive, forward-looking session. This is only the beginning, of course, and we look forward to continuing with the momentum we build together.

We want to hear from you! Tweet your questions and comments: #15NTcmomentum
