Find out why data science as a powerful tool for food banks, anti-corruption groups, and children’s hospices and more

ODI Fridays are free lunchtime lectures for everyone. You bring your lunch and join us for a Zoom meet-up, and we’ll provide an interesting talk. 

How can data be used to improve charities’ impact? What role does data science have in the social sector? Giselle Cory digs into these questions, drawing from DataKind UK’s experience in supporting organisations to use data science.

Using real life case studies from charities, local government, and social enterprises across the UK, including food banks, anti-corruption groups, and children’s hospices, she presents the case for data science as a powerful tool for good.
