Knowbility has welcomed volunteers in key roles in our work for more than 20 years.
Knowbility volunteers fill a variety of leadership and support roles, from serving on advisory boards and providing expert advice to helping with simple online research or supporting staff at onsite events. We could not do our work without volunteers! It strengthens our community and keeps our perspective open and diverse - thanks for thinking of helping Knowbility pursue our mission of tech equity for all! Here's how:
