Capacity Accelerator Network (CAN)
Democratizing data skills and investing in social impact organizations’ capacity to be data-driven will lead to transformative change. The Capacity Accelerator Network will work to increase skills and support organizations, enabling them to unlock the power of data to meet their missions.
For the social sector to benefit from today’s data revolution, we need both more data talent and more data capacity within organizations. Starting with a global agenda setting exercise, and with a focus on diversity, equity, and inclusion, we commit to training one-million purpose-driven data practitioners by 2032. At the same time, we also commit to helping social impact organizations build their infrastructure, operations, strategy and culture. We are excited to build community, share resources, offer trainings, and aggregate market insights through the Capacity Accelerator Network.
Receive latest news, upcoming events, and opportunities across the data for social impact community.
In developing diverse data-driven talent, leadership, infrastructure, strategy, and culture, I look forward to empowering social impact organizations to leverage 21st century skills to unlock the power of data to achieve their missions.Ronda Železný-Green, Ph.D. Program Director, Capacity Accelerator Network (CAN) data.org
