Making Data Matter: Action, Results and What Comes Next
Tuesday, November 8 • 5:15pm – 6:00pm

Modern NGOs and crisis responders spend a great deal of time collecting and managing data, but there is little payoff if that data is not used to understand results or make decisions. We will discuss the importance of creating strong data cultures within organizations, and will include case studies about crisis data, Gates Foundation research on interoperability, and how to visualize progress toward the SDGs.

Birds of a Feather Dinner: The Future of GIS Mapping
Monday, November 7 • 8:00pm – 10:00pm
