DataKindSF - Data Analysis for the Greater Good
DataKindSF just got their start and the reception was incredible. There was a huge turn out of people wanting to contribute by using high impact skills for greater good. I found out about the program through their meetup.
What I found particularly interesting about the whole thing was the vast possibilities for improving the ways that non-profits do business. At Procore, I helped guide the direction of our data quality and was a led the large scale reset of our data architecture and this kind of critical thinking could really make a difference for a lot of organizations.
Volunteering is typically a low impact activity. It obviously impacts individuals but the possibility to impact others at scale is particularly intriguing!
