We know that to keep up with the big changes in the world, do more with limited resources and to increase its impact, the Canadian social sector needs to harness the opportunities of digital data.

With this goal in mind, Powered by Data launched its Transform the Sector initiative on February 23rd with Transform the Sector 2017. Three-hundred people from nonprofit organizations, government, foundations, academia and business attended this sold out conference.  

Powered by Data is now transforming Transform the Sector from a one-time event into a nation-wide movement of individuals, nonprofit organizations, funders, and governments all working together to use digital data to increase the social sector's impact. 

Check out the video below to get a sense of what this movement looks like.
