Forward Summit: Data for Impact Conference
*SMALL DATA CAN MAKE A BIG IMPACT *
Data has transformed the way we work, interact, engage, and communicate— it’s amazing for its power to change and terrifying for its power to codify existing privileges and prejudices. We live in times of unparalleled access to data and information, that provides a world of possibilities, and a super-powered dose of responsibilities. #DataForImpact
