About the event
During the webinar, we will lay the foundations for solutions that allow NGOs to collect and use data on their work and implement effective strategies to benefit from it.
Non-profit organizations need funds to carry out their missions, but they also need to prove the results and usefulness of their work in order to attract donors and supporters. Funding organizations, institutions and the public are increasingly demanding evidence that NGOs are responsible and that their services deliver the desired results. Today, the ability to collect and store good data is key to any public benefit organization that wants to be successful. The data also helps organizations evaluate employees, manage risk and protect against malicious attacks.
Data science has a huge potential to optimize the work of NGOs, and also helps them make well-informed and reliable decisions.
Although not every organization can afford to hire analysts and professionals in this field, there are solutions to help teams collect the right data, store it and use it skillfully.
In this conversation we will focus on the issues of this
- What they are and what types of data they are
- How useful are the data for the work of organizations with a mission
- How to collect and find data from different sources on a limited budget
- How to easily create your own data
