Data for Social Good


Data can be used to bring about changes that matter. In addition to its use in research that is published, read, and added to amongst scholars, it can be used to advocate for policy changes, environmental changes, social changes, and more. It can be used for engaging with the local community, or improving state and national economy, or for moving towards global social justice.  Hear from various researchers about how they have used data to make an impact on society. They will reflect upon how they first recognized what impact their data could have, and how they then worked towards turning that data into a form to be practically used beyond academia.
