Empowering Communities through Data: Reimagining the future of India
Key insights from the session:
- Collaborative action is one of the important aspects to bring together a bunch of different actors across different sectors to provide tools and resources that can be leveraged at the community level
- Involving data and technology as a part of core operation strategy
- Along with the funds, it is important for the funders to come with pro-bono skills of mentoring and transfer of business data skills towards the social sector that needs it the most, inclusive with GEDI (Gender, Equity, Diversity, Inclusion)
- Incentivizing the primary data collectors working on-ground and giving right tools to them is important.
Today, tons of data is collected but how that data is managed, organized, and utilized is yet to be determined."
