What's "data science" about? How can it multiply impact in the social sector?
These questions and more will be explored in the first tutorial of a series held at Our Community House in an effort to uplift the social sector's data capability. This interactive hour will help to define the rapidly evolving term "data science", outline the different sources and uses of data in typical non-profit settings and introduce two case studies. Designed with a practical, next-steps focus, the tutorial will embed discussion and an exercise to begin evaluating your organisation's data readiness.
For this tutorial only, US-based special guest Andrew Means will be in attendance to share his insights from an influential career in data and philanthropy. Andrew is currently the founder of Big Elephant Studios, a technology and data consulting firm for nonprofits, and has previously been Associate Director at the Center for Data Science & Public Policy at The University of Chicago.
