Digital data offer a world of possibilities for civil society to achieve greater impact – data transforms how we operate, interact and serve constituents.

The digital age also presents civil society with a new set of responsibilities and challenges.

Poorly-managed data can cause great harm. Civil society’s rising dependence on digital data and infrastructure has raised new ethical and governance challenges, generated a new set of regulatory actors, and made many organizations and employees feel overwhelmed by their lack of digital capacity. Many of the organizations and individuals working to find solutions to these problems remain isolated from one another.

Now is the time for stakeholders across the social sector to come together to consider the possibilities and responsibilities of using digital data ethically, safely and effectively for social good.

Join other data experts, academics, practitioners, and social sector leaders for a series of one-day conferences around the world in 2017.

Come together with local civil society actors in your city to share ideas, learn best practices, and help build a global network of organizations using data for social impact.
