In these uncertain times, advances in data science, machine learning and predictive technologies offer organizations working to protect vulnerable communities unprecedented opportunity to leverage data as a resource for good.
DataKind and Omidyar Network are calling for project proposals from organizations interested in using data science to promote democratic freedoms and civil liberties in the U.S. If your organization is selected, you'll be matched with a team of pro bono data scientists to help you maximize your impact.
Watch these videos to learn more about how data science can help your organization and how to write a winning application.
With DataCorps, your organization will have the opportunity to work with an elite group of pro bono data scientists - including statisticians, data engineers, and computer programmers - on a multi-month project to help you cut costs, save staff time, reach more people in need and ultimately maximize your impact.
In response to recent discourse and policy in the U.S. targeting immigrants, refugees, people of color and other vulnerable groups, we are working with Omidyar Network to help bolster the efforts of organizations working to protect the rights of these communities. If your organization focuses on promoting civil liberties, combating hate speech, protecting refugees and immigrants, promoting journalism and combating fake news or other related issues, we'd love to work with you.
Apply by April 30, Projects Start in June
As part of its commitment to creating a world of positive returns, Omidyar Network is financially underwriting this call for proposals and, once applications are reviewed, will host a matching challenge to inspire other funders to join in and accelerate impact at this critical time.
