Accelerate the community sector’s digital transformation
to build greater social equity
DATAide is a skill-building and leadership program that helps community agencies execute and succeed in their digital transformation. This initiative is a joint response to the issues and challenges that prevent organizations from fully capitalizing on the digital transformation. DATAide is also an opportunity to adapt the digital transformation to the community sector’s principles and values.
The program consists of an orientation webinar, a training component, and a leadership support lab. A grant program is also available to help organizations effectively support their digital transformation initiatives.
