We need the best talent available to combat society’s most important challenges – but in the field of data for social impact, this is not yet the reality. We have seen the tremendous impact of trained data professionals re-shaping the private sector, but in the social sector, there is a gap – and an opportunity. How can we come together to train, foster, and deploy this talent? How will this global data talent forge solutions to systemic and interconnected humanitarian challenges?
Join hosts data.org and The Patrick J. McGovern Foundation as they tackle these questions head-on during a virtual event to launch a new report on data talent in the social sector titled “Workforce Wanted: Data Talent for Social Impact”. Tune in for a first look at the wide-ranging report, expert insight into the findings, and pathways to build, shape, and support a globally inclusive talent base driving social impact over the next decade.
