The Digital Nations Group (DNG) is an important new global strategic initiative from DWG, focusing on the digital transformation of non-corporate entities – to create a more digitally integrated public and civic sphere globally.
DNG enables governments, public agencies, charities, NGOs and related bodies to plan and manage their digital transformation by connecting with similarly minded entities in a safe and protected environment. Once in action, DNG acts as an accelerator in creating a more integrated public and civic sphere globally.
Most visitors to this page will know that DWG membership has been successfully serving executives and practitioners from the world’s largest companies in an exclusive, digital environment for 15 years – and DNG makes the corporate expertise and knowledge from DWG corporate members available to DNG members through a “corporate digital buddy” programme.
As Mike Fraietta, Digital Workplace Product Manager – Collaboration, BNY Mellon, who attended the Geneva DNG launch says:
“Is the Digital Nations Group the next Davos-type gathering in its infancy? Honestly, it sounds a bit crazy, but this type of gathering is critical for current and future communications between people, governments and organizations. The need will only grow dramatically and if we can help solve real world issues, I only see this gathering growing exponentially.”
DNG is a unique, secure membership environment, enabling members to work together, both in person and through secure online interactions, to accelerate digital workplaces and advance communications and key initiatives.
One of the core offerings of the new DNG is to provide a dynamic forum online and in person for members to discuss their own digital issues with other organizations who share similar challenges – as well as allowing them to draw on the expertise and experience of colleagues from the corporate world.
The inaugural meeting at UNHCR was attended by Oxfam, UNICEF, the Food Standards Agency, British Council, Italian Parliament, European Parliament, as well as IKEA and BNY Mellon.
DNG comprises governments, parliaments, non-government organizations, non-profit agencies and other public institutions – but also includes input and confidential knowledge exchange with large corporate organizations, including Adobe, AON, IKEA and AEGON (who are among the 80+ corporate members of the Digital Workplace Group).
Through interacting with peers, you will get great insider tips, learn about best practices and hear top research recommendations from others who share your journey, its challenges and opportunities.
