Data for social good: it sounds nice, right? But what do we really mean when we talk about data and social good? Join CIPE, Data2X, the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data, +Social Good, and TechSoup as we unpack why data is important for our common social good.
Join @TechSoup@CIVICUSalliance and @plus_socialgood for the August #NPTechChat Twitter chat on the closing space for civil society. Around the world, civil society faces a range of challenges to what we commonly hold to be basic civil rights from the freedom of assembly to freedoms of expression. These challenges, themselves manifesting in a variety forms from the bureaucratic to the violent, are being met by citizens and organizations coming together to craft solutions in order to move forward.
CIVICUS, a global alliance of civil society organizations, is leading the effort to highlight these challenges and offer solutions. But what are these threats? How do they differ from Africa to the Middle East, from Asia to the Americas? What are the different solutions being offered in response? What can the nonprofit sector do better to protect civil society?
Join @TechSoup, and @plus_socialgood for the July #NPTechChat Twitter chat on financing for development: what it means for local communities.

Data is a tremendously powerful resource with the potential to move the needle on tough humanitarian challenges. The same algorithms and techniques that help companies boost profits can help social change organizations increase their impact. However, many organizations aren’t taking full advantage. Go beyond using data for simple counting and reporting – use it to change the world!
Learn how data science can help your organization improve its decision-making and advance your mission. Come ready to ask questions and share how you’re using data to make an impact!
TechSoup Global and NetSquared are excited to announce the inaugural #NPTechChat. Join TechSoup Global, the UN Foundation and +SocialGood for the first #NPTechChat Twitter chat on how technology is increasing access to healthcare and improving community health.
