Data for the Common Good: featuring DataKind™
DataKind™ is a community of pioneering data scientists, visionary changemakers, community builders, and social innovators with the talent, commitment and energy to open the door and show us the way. Headquartered in New York City, we have Chapters in Bangalore, Dublin, San Francisco, Singapore, the UK and Washington DC.
We are living inside a data revolution that is transforming the way we understand and interact with each other and the world, and it has only just begun. Data has the potential to make hidden relationships crystal clear, to be a common language between people who might never have spoken, to inspire collaboration, to offer metrics for decision making, and to turn seemingly unrelated ideas into powerful insights that can solve the most complex and intractable problems we face.
How it works
DataKind™ brings high-impact organizations dedicated to solving the world’s biggest challenges together with leading data scientists to improve the quality of, access to and understanding of data in the social sector. This leads to better decision-making and greater social impact. Launched in 2011, DataKind leads a community of passionate data scientists, visionary partners and mission-driven organizations with the talent, commitment and energy to use data science in the service of humanity.
