“Impossible is an opinion, not a fact” – Mohammed Ali
In this webinar we will learn about visioning – having a grand vision and about rallying your team around a stretch goal.
With Special Thanks to McCarter & English
NOTE: Our Main Panel on Charities & Nonprofits will be followed one week later on August 5 by a Fireside Chat – so please contact the organizer with questions on the Meetup Site…
We will be discussing:
- Data for Good organizations (DataKind, DSSG) and how they apply data science to help nonprofits and NGOs.
- There is an important realization that we need to build good data collection infrastructure before we can apply data science to their problems.
- How to build technological solutions WITH community leaders, rather than technologists building FOR community leaders.
- Mission to understand how everyone can make a better social impact.
- Value versus Goals – having a grand vision or stretch goal, getting your team to rally about an impossible or vision.
- How to evaluate success.
- Has tech changed the way we set goals? How do we overcome the institutional connectedness?
