Connecting Data People in the Sector

There are few opportunities for people who work with data in the non-profit sector to connect with each other. This is especially critical for those who are the lone "data person" in their organization and who do not have a team or colleagues in similar roles to fallback on for support.

We have begun to convene an informal network to help cultivate these relationships and provide a space for mutual support, to learn from each other, and to engage in professional development. The network connects virtually via Slack and through an online meet-up group.
