Event description

Description

Most of us agree that data is important in any organisation. Despite this, much of the data held by charities is under-used, often because it is inaccessible, messy, or managers and teams do not realise its full potential.

Like acquiring any new skill, using data better involves phases of progression. For an organisation embarking on a data project, understanding where they are in this journey is a helpful starting point.

This was the foundation for DataKind UK and Nesta, who both wanted to look at how social sector organisations and local authorities are embracing data, and sketch out what the journey towards data maturity looks like.

Join us for lunch and an introduction and discussion on two data maturity projects.

  • The Data Evolution project, run by DataKind UK and Data Orchard — researching how charities and social enterprises work with data.

  • The Local Datavores project, run by Nesta — identifying pioneering uses of data in UK local authorities.

What is data maturity? Is having a means of assessing data maturity helpful? What does the good use of data look like? What are your peers doing with data? Join us to get answers to these questions and more.

This event will be chaired by Ed Anderton, Strategy and Policy Manager, Access - The Foundation for Social Investment. With presentations from Tom Symons, Principal Researcher, Nesta, Emma Prest, General Manager, DataKind UK and Sian Basker, Director, Data Orchard.
