The "Tech for Good" workshop series at Northern Illinois University, College of Business and Office of Innovation challenges the prevailing narrative that technology is solely responsible for societal ills and environmental degradation. Through interactive workshops, it showcases how technology, when developed and applied ethically and responsibly, can be a powerful force for positive transformative change. Topics covered include design thinking, digital entrepreneurship, ethical leadership, and innovation in action. The series addresses valid concerns around tech's impacts and equips students with strategies to mitigate potential harms while inspiring them to use technology as a potent force for good. Ultimately, it aims to cultivate a new generation of tech-savvy innovators committed to making a meaningful difference in the world.
