The Data Values Project Public Consultation: Reimagining Data and Power

In 2021, the Data Values Project engaged with more than 200 people from 150 organizations and 55 countries to ask the question: What would a fair data future look like?

 

Their ideas helped to shape a white paper focused on shifting power in how data is designed, collected, used, and re-used. Now, the project is seeking your input to shape an agenda for advocacy in the sector. 

 

Read the white paper in English, Spanish or French and share your thoughts via this survey. The consultation is open for comments through May 20

The Data Science Fellowship: Driving digital transformation across Africa

Building data science knowledge and skills sits at the heart of digital transformation in Africa and is the backbone for better evidence-based decision-making. 

 

We partnered with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences to deliver training and facilitate a fellowship to support government initiatives in forest conservation, child protection, and more.
