"What can we do with our data?" 
- most charities, 2019

Data is arguably the scariest four-letter word in the charity sector. But like digital transformation, if embraced, structured and built into a charities digitally strategy, it can transform how a charity delivers its services, highlight organisational and operational inefficiencies, and elevate an organisation's donor marketing. 

Charities often collect large amounts of data by the very nature of the work they do. But are we using it to its fullest potential or even at all? 

Giselle Cory from Datakind UK's session will share data approaches possible to charities, data best practices, and a data checklist that charities can use to build a data-driven culture and kickstart the journey to data maturity.
