Tech in the Commons is back for its third year to give nonprofits the tech tools they need to grow their impact, audience, fundraising and organizational efforts.
The first session of 2019, in partnership with Comcast NBCUniversal, will focus on census data and how it can be utilized for more informed decision-making for nonprofit and civic-minded organizations.
The census has been around for over 200 years and, for the first time, will be going digital in 2020. While an exciting step, there are still a lot of concerns about how the digital divide will cause important groups of people to be excluded from the count.
During this Tech in the Commons session, we’ll present three different case studies of organizations currently using census data, and discuss how best to use the data collected, and how to make sure data-driven decisions are fully informed and inclusive. After each speaker presents, we’ll break up into three different sections for more in-depth discussion between attendees and speakers.
Tickets are $5, but that’s only to reserve your spot. When you arrive at the event, you’ll get your $5 back!-30-
