Doing Good With Data: Data Without Borders

A session at Strata New York 2011

Friday 23rd September, 2011

8:50am to 9:05am (EST)

Data scientists and technology companies are rapidly recognizing the immense power of data for drawing insights about their impact and operations, yet NGOs and non-profits are increasingly being left behind with mounting data and few resources to make use of it. Data Without Borders seeks to bridge this data divide by matching underserved NGOs with pro bono data scientists so that they can collect, manage, and analyze their data together in the service of humanity, creating a more open environment for socially conscious data and bringing greater change to the world.
