Use Your Data to Drive Action

June 16, 2021 | Webinar

Attend for Free

In a relatively short period of time, the social impact sectors have shifted from a “nice-to-have” view of impact data to it being expected.

With digital transformation, an abundance of data is now available at our fingertips, and the expectation is that we can use this data to be more strategic about our resources and time, optimizing efforts toward change. In reality, however, most organizations are not equipped with the capacity to take advantage of the data available to guide their decision-making. In fact, only half of the organizations surveyed recently use available information to inform their decision-making (BI-Survey). This could be because it is hard to access, siloed in different programs in various formats, they lack the knowledge or tools to analyze their data, or they have gaps in their data that need to be addressed before getting full insight into their impact.

In this session, we will review steps you can take at your organization today to understand how you can make data actionable. No more setting and forgetting KPIs, or static data collection that fulfills reporting requirements now but does little to inform your decision-making several months from now. We’re going to review how you can be using data to inspire action, drive more effective collaboration, and optimize your programs to accelerate change.

Build skills in:

  • data analysis
  • data reporting
  • impact measurement
  • critical thinking

This webinar is for you if:

  • you want to understand who you’re impacting;
  • you’d like to make decisions based on data;
  • you want to be able to communicate your impact in a compelling way; and
  • you’d like to learn more about trust-based philanthropy

*The recording will only be available to Be Social Change members. Become a member today for $5/month or $49/year to access this event recording and others.

Use Your Data to Drive Action Partner

At UpMetrics, we believe that relying on quantitative, static data is no longer an option to drive effective impact. By reporting and analyzing both the numbers and the qualitative data in one platform, your impact organization gains the insights needed to identify the true drivers of positive outcomes and pivot as needed. Measuring change also powers data-driven stories which will accelerate change.

Our platform is built to support a phased-approach that considers all aspects of data for your impact organization, providing you with the tools to answer current questions from partners and identify new ones that lead to more opportunities for growth.
