Navigating the Digital Now – Feb 2019

Posted by Stanford Social Innovation Review (SSIR) on November 27, 2018

Join us February 19-20, 2019, Stanford, CA, for our 5th annual Data on Purpose Conference!

Why should you attend “Navigating the Digital Now”? Data on Purpose is a must-attend conference for anyone looking to build digital capacity to transform how social sector organizations operate, interact with one another, and serve constituents. 

Attendees will come away with:

  • Insight into the latest technology trends impacting the social sector, and an understanding that you don’t need to keep up with every trend in order to successfully build digital capacity
  • Clarity of the changing role and practice of ethical data use, and an assurance that you don’t need to become (or hire) a data scientist to be a data-driven, digital organization
  • Confidence in your own ability to answer the technology questions that have bedeviled your organization, and tools to bring those answers to fruition

SSIR will assemble technology experts, nonprofit and foundation leaders, researchers, and other prominent voices to weave together the latest research- and practice-based insights.

To get a taste of Data on Purpose 2019, take a listen to Planet Inc.’s Andrew Zolli and his keynote address from earlier this year. Zolli’s presentation, “From Beneficial AI to Big Indicators: Technology in the Service of Humanity” discusses big data, AI and real-life considerations for “what comes after.” Find the podcast here.
