Over the past 10 years, we’ve seen how technology has led to the creation of new digital data, gaining new insights and transforming almost every sector. The same algorithms and predictive technologies that companies use to boost profits can be thoughtfully leveraged by the social sector to improve the world. However, a decade later, most mission-driven organizations lack the resources or expertise to take full advantage of the data revolution.
In an age of multiple crises and undeniable inequities, the world needs DataKind now more than ever. We’re looking to partner with individuals and organizations that share our vision of a world where all those who fight on the frontlines of social change can use data science and AI to accelerate the pace of their impact.
