Empowering Communities Through Data
Data For Good is a collective of do gooder data scientists, who want to use their powers for good, and not evil, to help make our communities better through data.
We help other not for profit, and non-governmental, organizations harness the power of their data to make more informed and better decisions in their quest to make their communities flourish.
With a plethora of data scientists, data analysts and developers in one of Canada’s best cities, and an abundance of tech enthusiasts, our collective of experienced volunteers come with not only a lot of grit, but expertise across industries. From tech to consulting to banking and even academia, our volunteers have a passion to go beyond their 9 to 5 and use their skills for good.
We also partner with some of the largest companies in Canada who sponsor their space, food and time to help our cause. Just this year we’ve partnered with Communitech and Economical Insurance.
If you have the passion as a sponsor, NFP or volunteer we would love to hear more from you. Volunteers – please join our Meetup group to stay in-the-know about future events: https://www.meetup.com/Data-for-Good-WR/.
The team in Waterloo Region is led by Nadia Novikova, Harisah Mehmood and Jeffrey Baer who are committed to making an impact through data in the Waterloo Region.
We are always on the lookout for a new challenge.
Contact Nadia to see if we can help: firstname.lastname@example.org
Want to be part of the fun? You don’t need to be a data scientist or a PhD, there’s lots of ways that you can get involved with Data for Good.
In Waterloo, we love to host big events but we also find it hard to fit all the enthusiasm in one room. If you have space to share with 50-100 passionate do gooders, we would be ecstatic to partner with you as our sponsor.
