Leading for-profit companies thrive by embracing data insights to drive increased efficiency, effectiveness, and scale. They view information and analytics as core strategic assets in running a modern business. The social sector must follow this lead by embracing the Software for Good movement characterized by data-driven decisions that maximize social impact.
This session is led by Fruchterman, who authored the recent SSIR article, “Using Data for Action and for Impact.” He leads an interactive discussion on how Software for Good empowers social enterprises to harness data to better serve their communities.
