The Grand Challenge to Harness Technology for Social Good is unique among the Grand Challenges

in that it sets out not to address a specific issue or problem, but to fundamentally transform the field

of social work with respect to its relationship to technology. Specifically, it aims to harness big data

and deploy information and communication technology to improve the efficacy of social programs,

accelerate the pace of social discovery, and reduce inequalities.

During the past five years, network members have led the field in this direction through their practice,

research, teaching, and advocacy. They have served as a resource for the field, providing information

and serving as a forum for people to meet and connect around the technology issues affecting them

and their work.

A great deal of movement has occurred in 2020, as COVID-related social distancing measures drastically

accelerated the field's adoption of technology - from remote working and teaching to virtual conferences

to telehealth. In this sense, the coronavirus pandemic brought new attention and urgency to this

Grand Challenge.
