Steps to embark on a data maturity journey.
basic data capability tools

Data is a powerful tool to help not-for-profits accelerate impact. It enables us to have visibility over our work and insights and provides opportunity to make data-driven strategic plans and outcomes, and can support predictive analytics like AI.  

To take advantage of this, it is critical that organisations have built a strong framework and foundation in order to utilise data. This includes having an understanding of how data is being captured, stored and managed, and an organisational-wide plan for embarking on a data maturity journey.  

Over the next few months, we’ll be updating this page with webinars to support your data capability level to help you and your organisation improve your data skills and make a bigger difference for the causes you support.
