Global Goods Community

From Digital Square
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Digital Square is expanding engagement and support to all approved global good implementers through our Notice cycles as well as our request for application (RFA)s (non-Notice cycle awards). In March 2019, we began offering monthly Global Good Webinars for the global good innovator community. The topics of the webinars range from technical, operational, and communications topics. Digital Square intends for these webinars to be an opportunity for the community to share, learn, and engage both with each other as well as the Peer Review Committee members, who are also invited to these webinars.


Global Good Webinars

September 9, 2021 | Building Sustainable Communities of Practice

In this webinar, Digital Square led a discussion on developing best practices for the global goods community of practices. Communities of Practice in digital health are a key platform for sharing knowledge and experience, identifying gaps, and spurring innovation. However, the design and development of active communities can be challenging, from managing communities across different languages and driving member contributions to core technology. The panelists shared their methods of community engagement as well as lessons learned.
