After a jam-packed schedule at The Skoll World Forum for Social Enterprise just over a week ago, we’re now lucky enough to be heading to Do Good Data 2015. It is the leading conference on data, research, and analytics for social sector professionals, not to mentioned being organized by long-term contributor and friend to Markets For Good, Andrew Means.
On Thursday, April 30 and Friday, May 1, we expect our data driven thirst to be quenched with an impressive selection of keynote speakers, including some of the most innovative and forward-thinking leaders in the social sector. All of whom are focused on how data is creating a more effective and efficient sector. There will also be an array of breakout sessions, designed to deliver concrete skill development in data analysis, data visualization, research methodology, and much more.
To give you an idea about the speakers in attendance, we will be watching a keynote from Michael Weinstein, the Chief Program Officer of the Robin Hood Foundation in New York City. He is considered one of the best thinkers on making evidence-based philanthropic decisions. Ned Breslin, the CEO of Water for People, will be there talking about some of the challenges and hardships you can face when beginning to rigorously use data in your organization. Considering they will be supported by Markets For Good contributors such as Beth Kanter and Peter York, the conference offers a unique learning opportunity for all of us in this space.
