Nonprofit organizations have moved well past the time when technology and data were treated as standalone entities. Now they are an integral and critical part of our organization’s operations, on par with fundraising, communications, and other core functions. And like those other core functions, we must examine our technology and data strategies to properly evaluate and prioritize our needs and successfully build our digital capacity. How we do this is the theme of this year’s "Data on Purpose 2019: “Navigating the Digital Now.”
SSIR will assemble leading experts and scholars to weave together the latest research- and practice-based insights from data scientists and researchers, nonprofit and foundation leaders, policymakers, and other prominent experts, to help identify what is truly important, versus simply what is possible or what is urgent.
