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, @Datakind and @plus_socialgood for the June #NPTechChat chat on how data is fueling social change. A TechSoup Global project, #NPTechChat is a new monthly Twitter-chat series for social change activists that’s focused on reducing barriers and increasing impact using technology around the globe. Thanks to our marketing sponsor, +Social Good.
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!
