Join a working conversation with Lucy Bernholz, self-professed philanthropy wonk and research scholar at the Stanford Univerity Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society, where she is helping to launch the Digital Civil Society Lab. Ms. Bernholz authors the annual series of Philanthropy and Social Economy Blueprints and the Philanthropy 2173 blog, and is a founding member of digitalIMPACT.

Digital data are a core resource for nonprofits. These data come in a variety of forms and serve many purposes — from the public data sets used to inform program strategy to the photos on your website. Nonprofits are committed to managing their financial and human resources effectively and efficiently, and they now need to bring those values - plus their mission - to governing digital data. Toward that end, the Digital Civil Society Lab at Stanford's Center on Philanthropy and Civil Society has launched - a web-based tool to curate and share the policies and tools being built by the sector for the sector.


This workshop includes an introduction to, a chance for you to do a "capacity check" for your own organization, and a facilitated discussion of the other resources nonprofits need to strengthen their data governance practices. Participants should bring their own internet-enabled device (tablet, phone or laptop) to access the site during the session.


Register early as capacity is limited to 50.
