How can we shift VCSE organisational cultures so that data is seen as a key asset and resource?

This workshop will explore what we mean by data maturity and how VCSE leaders can use data effectively. Facilitated by Madeleine Spinks, Co-Chief Exec and co-founder of Data Orchard CIC, the workshop will include practical insights from Alice Mason, Chief Executive of Manchester Care and Repair on their data maturity journey. There will be time and space to reflect on your organisation’s own needs in terms of skills development and for Q&A with Madeleine and Alice.
