Case Study: Converting a National Environmental Nonprofit to Drupal

In 2017, a national nonprofit focusing on social justice and environmental sustainability embarked on a 18-month process to convert three different platforms into one consolidated website.

As director of digital products during this conversion, I'll share lessons learned from the buildout including: the RFP and vendor selection process, an assessment of our user roles and permissions, the content structure, and a review of integrations with external systems.

We'll discuss additional considerations for how to hold space for multiple viewpoints, as well as how to implement a respectful, open, and transparent process for all stakeholders.

Details of the case study are here:
