What do OhioGuidestone, NASA, and Greater Cleveland Food Bank (GCFB) have in common? We all use data in innovative ways, of course! And so we’re all eager to tell you about it at Data Days CLE — together! IFCI fellows and data extraordinaires Whitney Yoder and Lisa Potoma, along with data analysts Julie Rentsch and Danielle Davies, will talk about data-informed company culture at the third-annual Data Days CLE conference April 7. There, they’ll team up with fellow data gurus from NASA and GCFB. During their breakout session, this lineup of experts will discuss how our organizations have overcome barriers to best utilize data. They’ll highlight the many ways data inform what we do, such as our practices, methods, tools, products, and more. In addition, they’ll discuss how to improve literacy and empower the non-data-savvy to make data-driven decisions. Make sure you mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 7, because you won’t want to miss this! Data Days CLE is an annual conference in the greater Cleveland area for promoting accessible, open data use for community impact.
