Powered by Data, along with Ontario Nonprofit Network, will be hosting a webinar on Tuesday, June 23, 2020 at 2:00 PM EDT, titled The Importance of Data Sharing During a Pandemic. The webinar will be free and open to everyone. The speakers will be John Roberts, Chief Privacy Officer and Archivist of Ontario at the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services, and Vanessa Parlette, Phd, Program Director of the Data Policy Coalition at Powered by Data. From the event page: The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many hardships, but it also brings our sector the unique opportunity to improve community and social programming by rebuilding more equitable systems. How can we rebuild more equitable systems? By sharing data between government and nonprofits. From daily counts on cases, testing, ICU admissions across the globe - having accurate - and disaggregated - data on the prevalence and outcomes of COVID-19 makes a significant impact. Without accurate information, we can’t understand how big of a problem we’re facing and what it will take to solve it. While the problem of data gaps is highlighted during times of emergency, data (and the lack of it) impacts decisions affecting the lives and livelihoods of all of us, each and every day. Join our fireside chat with Chief Privacy Officer, John Roberts, and Program Director, Vanessa Parlette, to learn how your nonprofit can leverage data-sharing to help ensure an equitable recovery for all.
