Webinar: Data-Driven in the Social Sector

FEBRUARY 26, 2014 - 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET


By applying big data to their research, organizations can better inform their decision-making, understand the fields in which they work, and achieve the greatest impact. Join Jon Sotsky of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Sean Gourley from Quid (Knight Foundation's data analytics firm) as they discuss new ways to help people engage around complex issues and research by applying breakthrough techniques in data mapping and visualization. They will use their recent collaboration on the report " The Emergence of Civic Tech: Investments in a Growing Field" to provide insights on integrating data-driven models into social sector research and the trend toward open sharing of data and ideas.

This webinar is for strategy and assessment teams, research and communication professionals, and anyone at foundations, nonprofits, and social enterprises focused on highlighting the impact of their work. Webinar registrants will have the opportunity to ask Sotsky and Gourley questions during the last 20 minutes of the webinar, which will be moderated by Eric Nee, managing editor of  Stanford Social Innovation Review.

Thanks to the generosity of Knight Foundation and Quid, this webinar is complimentary.
