Coffee Talk: Establishing Resilient Data Practices

2020 presented each funder with their own set of overlapping challenges. This interactive session explores how funders were forced to change practices around the data they collected and what they will expect from grantees in the future.

This discussion is around the following questions:

  • How are foundations reacting to disruptions created for them and their stakeholders?
  • What data has changed from pre-2020 that is no longer relevant?
  • What relevant data has changed that will have a downstream impact? (i.e. changes now create funding shifts later)
  • How will funders change their practices going forward?

This forum brings professionals from across the sector together to share experiences and best practices. 

We encourage you to continue the conversation from this session on Compass - A Foundant Community.
